2022 Summer Start Checklist

 Summer Edge 2023 Information Coming Soon!



Some people automatically know that they want to start their UC Santa Cruz journey in the summer, while others decide at the last minute. In either case, you can use this checklist to make sure you don't miss any important steps!

If you want to take classes this summer, you need to:

  1. Register between March 1 - June 15
  2. Enroll in your five-credit Session 2 course starting May 1
  3. Submit your 2021-2022 FAFSA or Dream Application by June 15. This is in addition to the 2022-2023 FAFSA or Dream Application you already filed for the upcoming school year. 
  4. Decide if you are paying for UCSHIP or submitting a waiver. Because having an insurance plan is required, all Edge students are automatically enrolled in and charged for UC SHIP unless they submit an online insurance waiver.

If you want to live on campus this summer, you need to:

  1. Submit a Summer Housing Application (after you enroll in your course). Priority will be given to students who submit a housing application by May 31.
