Pay for Only 10

What is Pay for Only 10?

fee table

This summer, all current and incoming UCSC and UC undergraduates will only pay for up to 10 credits of UCSC summer tuition. This means UC students can take more classes but pay for only 10 credits in tuition, making it less expensive to make degree progress this summer.

For example, a current UC student completing 10 credits of coursework will pay $3,123.90 [$2,790 in summer tuition plus the $333.90* campus fee]. Even if you take 15 or 20 credits this summer, you will pay the same $3,123.90. You can take the credits in any session throughout the summer quarter. 

You can see this illustrated on the summer UC campus fee table.

*2023 fee, subject to change.
