About Us

Welcome to Summer Session!

The dual mission of the Summer Session office is to support current students in timely graduation while simultaneously opening UCSC enrollment to our entire community. Our broad summer curriculum is designed for UCSC students to continue making degree progress. We also welcome high schoolers and visitors from other colleges to our world-class research university.

In addition to Summer Session, our office coordinates the Summer Academies exclusively for incoming students. The Academies allow students to earn units towards graduation while building community and confidence on campus as they transition into university life.
