Differences in Summer Session  

Summer session is slightly different from our regular fall, winter and spring quarters. Read below to understand these differences.

Summer Session is Accelerated

Most summer classes are only 6 weeks long (regular quarter length classes in fall, winter and spring are 12 weeks). However, summer classes offer the same number of credits, so the same amount of material is condensed into a shorter amount of time. 

What does this mean?

For F-1 students: The minimum required number of units in summer is 6 units (for all other terms the minimum requirement is 12 units). 

For all students: We don't recommend taking more than 2 classes to help ensure academic success.

The annual estimated cost of attendance doesn't include summer session

For F-1 students, the annual estimated cost when beginning studies in fall, winter or spring only covers 3 terms (9-10 months of study) since summer is typically an optional term. See Tuition & Fees.

If you're starting your studies in summer, then summer is not optional and you should expect to pay the additional amounts below (not including books, supplies or spending money). 


Tuition and Enrollment Fees*
Based on 6 units minimum; $276.00 per unit, effective July 1, 2024.

Students may take additional units at $276.00/unit.
