High School Registration

Registration will reopen Thursday, July 27 at 12:01 a.m. to Saturday, July 29 at 11:59 p.m. Register to be able to enroll in Session 2 classes. No exceptions made after the deadline.

First Steps:

  • Submit your online registration
  • Submit your high school verification form by Monday, July 31 at 5:00 p.m.
  • If you have ever attended UCSC, please include your ID number.  If you don’t have one, we will set one up for you.
  • Pay the nonrefundable $50 registration fee.  We start processing your form after payment is complete.
  • The earlier you complete the registration process, the better!

After you Register:

  • The registration process is not immediate and involves multiple offices - we estimate it will take three days max to complete.
  • Staff will begin processing the moment your payment is received - we want you to be able to start class Monday or Tuesday.
  • When processing is complete, you will receive an email with your UCSC ID number, your CruzID, and access to set up your passwords so you're able to log into your MyUCSC portal for enrollment.
  • In the event that you aren't active and enrolled by Monday, go to your first class anyway so you don't miss anything.  Your account summer set up (or re-activation for returning UCSC students) should be completed by end of Tuesday.
  • If you don’t see the email by Wednesday, please contact us at summer@ucsc.edu. Continue attending class in the meantime.
  • Please view our page on navigating MyUCSC for assistance with adding classes, changing passwords, etc.
  • Then you can enroll in Session 2 courses! The add deadline is Thursday, August 3 at 11:59 p.m.

Instructors use your UCSC Gmail:

  • The UCSC Email system is powered by Google. All faculty, staff, and students have an individual UCSC Google Gmail account (cruzID@ucsc.edu).
  • All official UC and UCSC communication is e-mailed to the @ucsc.edu address.
  • This is especially important if you are in an online course. All online course information will go exclusively to your UCSC Gmail account.
