There are hundreds of courses scheduled across seven sessions of varying length in Summer 2021, and anybody is welcome to take a UC Santa Barbara course during the summer through open enrollment! Whether you’re looking to explore a new academic discipline, gain mastery in a subject area that interests you, or accelerate your progress to degree, you’re invited to build a summer schedule that works for you.
If you are an enrolled UC Santa Barbara student, you can explore the full list of summer course offerings in GOLD and register according to your pass time. You do not need to apply to take part in Summer Sessions.
If you are not a UC Santa Barbara student but are interested in taking courses over the summer, you can view offerings through the Public Curriculum Search. Change the "Quarter" field to "Summer 2021" and search for courses by academic subject area or educational level. Please note that space in courses is dynamic, and that you’ll need to follow the steps to submit a Summer Sessions application based on the type of student you are before you’re able to enroll in courses.
For all types of students, space in courses is not guaranteed.
