As part of Summer Session, high school students (age 14-18) with a minimum of a 3.0 GPA can take Session 1 (June 20 - July 22, 2022) courses and earn UC credits from anywhere! 

At UCSC, online courses are just like their face-to-face equivalents. Students are challenged, encouraged to think deeply, and expected to perform university-level work.

In High School Summer Online, students will: 

  • Earn academic credit that is transferable to a future college or university (or back to high school)
  • Attend online college classes with current UCSC students, visiting college students from across the country, and other high school students.
  • Receive 50% off the summer tuition rate! 
  • Have the opportunity to practice and demonstrate what they learn individually and in groups through discussion forums, writing assignments, projects, and video conferences. 

Request information or join our mailing list to be reminded of high school program deadlines.
