College Courses

UC Santa Cruz combines the resources of a world-class public research university with a distinctive undergraduate experience characterized by our college system. Each of the ten colleges is a vibrant living/learning community supported by faculty and staff who provide academic support, organize student activities, and sponsor events that enhance the intellectual and social life of the campus. All undergraduate students become affiliated with one of our 10 colleges. 

Over the summer, many of the colleges offer unique classes, open to anyone, regardless of the UCSC college you are from, other universities, high schools, or UCSC Staff.
