Important reminder: The Summer Academy takes place during Session 2 of the summer session. Please select course(s) offered during Session 2. 

  • Check the Course Recommendations by Major for a list of suggested courses for transfer students from the Academic Advising community.
  • Many new transfer students may get the following error message when enrolling - Please don't worry!error-message.png 
We can help you.  The error message means that your UCSC account doesn't have your completed prerequisites coded in the system yet; it can take a while.  So we can help get you enrolled in the right summer course.  For many classes, the next steps are listed in "Class Notes" in the Schedule of Classes.  If you need guidance, email to summeracademy@ucsc.edu.
