Summer Session

Taking courses during UCSC Summer Session is a great opportunity to: explore a new discipline, make-up a class, get ahead on your major coursework, or take care of general education requirements. Summer Session courses move fast, and the accommodations process can be a different depending on your situation. See below for more details:

UCSC Continuing Students:  If you’re already affiliated with the DRC, you don’t need to schedule an appointment. But as always, you need to submit your Academic Accommodations Letter(s) to your instructor as soon as possible. Some accommodations take time to coordinate so submitting sooner will help provide them in a timely manner so please make sure you request accommodations as soon as possible.

 

UCSC Newly Admitted Students: Schedule your appointment in advance by contacting us. You do not need to have your UCSC credentials yet to schedule this appointment. We will work with you for summer classes as well and help you prepare for the rest of the year. Once you have access to MyUCSC, then you can request accommodations through there. 

 

UC Students visiting from another UC: Please send your academic accommodations letters from your campus to us at drc@ucsc.edu. If you need the same accommodations, you may not need an appointment for us to provide you those. If you require new accommodations, then please schedule an appointment in addition to sending letters from your campus.

 

Visiting Students: Schedule your appointment in advance by contacting us. If you have academic accommodations from your home campus, send drc@ucsc.edu your accommodation letter for faster processing. You do not need to have your UCSC credentials yet to schedule this appointment. Once you have access to MyUCSC, then you can request accommodations through there. 

 

If you have exam accommodations, please visit our Summer Exams page for more information about how Summer Exams are administered.
