Additional Scenarios: 

  • If you are on a Leave of Absence (LOA) and are scheduled to return in Fall 2022, your MyUCSC portal should also be activated for summer enrollment. To check, go to "Enrollment Dates" and ensure you see "2022 Enrollment Dates." If it does not, start by checking with your college advisor.
  • If you have never been admitted to UCSC and want to enroll in a summer course, register as a visiting student. (you will not be Financial Aid eligible). 
  • Starting in Summer 2022, students who are barred due to spring grades have the ability to remain in summer classes and receive financial aid if they are aid eligible.

Note:

  • If you have a "hold" on your enrollment from past activity (past due bill, judicial, undeclared), that hold will remain until it is resolved. Completing the Summer Session registration process will not remove your hold.
