Officially UCR’s first quarter, Summer Sessions offers open enrollment to all students interested in attending regular UCR classes. Each summer, over 450 primary courses are offered, serving over 6,500 students. Many of the offered classes are impacted in the fall, winter, and spring quarters—creating an opportunity for students to take high-demand classes early. Summer Sessions has also worked to identify majors with lengthy and complex graduation requirements, strategically offering summer coursework critical to four-year graduation rates. Additionally, education abroad experiences are offered in summer through the Summer Study Abroad program as well as opportunities for secondary-school students to sample the college experience through the Summer Academy program.
