Deadline to apply is the Billing Due Date of each Session.  See the Summer Session Calendar for dates.


Eligible employees may receive a 25% discount on the per unit fees for up to two courses per summer. The discount is limited to UCSD Staff only. Spouse and/or dependents are no longer eligible for the Summer Session discount.

To be eligible, Staff must have completed their six-month probation period and have a career appointment of 50% time or a casual appointment of 100%.

The non-refundable application fee, lab/computer fees, course material fee, and other fees are not included in the discount.

The employee discount can only be applied to course unit fees for open enrollment summer session courses. An open enrollment course is a course that is generally open to all students that meet the prerequisites. Special programs such as a Masters Degree program in Education Studies are not eligible.

Course and application fees are determined by whether or not you have enrolled in one of the two quarters prior to summer.

Example #1: Eligible employees who enroll during Summer Session for the first time and who are not admitted to the Fall Quarter are charged at the visiting student rate and are charged an application fee.

Example #2: Eligible employees who have enrolled in at least one of the two quarters prior to summer or who are admitted to the Fall Quarter are charged a the continuing student rate and are not charged an application fee.

All employees must use the UCSD Human Resources Educational Benefitssystem to initiate the request.  Please refer to the Employee-Student Programpage for further instructions.

Once eligibility is verified and all approvals have been obtained, Summer Session will be notified of the request and apply the discount.  Summer Session will contact employees once the discount is applied.

Summer Success Programs

Summer Success Programs (SSPs) are developed for freshmen, sophomore and transfer students to give students an opportunity to improve their time-to degree at UC San Diego. These programs aim to jumpstart student success by enrolling in popular courses offered in a structured and supportive learning environment. The learning outcomes and program components are designed by UC San Diego departments. The Summer Session Office is working with the department Program Coordinators to ensure thorough administration of each program.  Summer Session’s goal is to provide department support and to align the planning and implantation of SSPs with Summer Session processes that are already in place.

A formal approval process for SSPs will be in effect for all programs offered beginning in Summer2017. Programs will submit a Program Proposal to the SSP Steering Committee for approval to offer the program. This application is due by December 2, 2017.

For more information, Summer Session has designed Summer Success Programs handbook to provide departments and Summer Session faculty with information Summer Success Programs.
