Welcome to UC Santa Barbara Summer Sessions

During seven sessions of varying length (from the end of June to mid-September), Summer Sessions offers over 600 courses, including online courses, and works with faculty and departments to develop unique learning experiences in special courses and programs well suited to the summer term.

Summer Sessions makes it possible for students to get a head start and to make progress toward their degree year around, with financial aid and housing available. Each year we welcome over 7500 students to UCSB for Summer Sessions.

Enrollment in Summer Session is open to everyone -- UCSB, visiting UC and other US colleges, international and qualified high school students. No matter what type of student you are, only in-state unit fee prices apply.

Additionally, Summer Sessions welcomes the campus and broader Santa Barbara communities to enjoy the films, plays and events of the Summer Cultural and Enrichment Program and the engaging summer lecture series, GRITtalks.

We hope to see you this summer.
