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. Here is a checklist to make sure you receive your accommodations during the summer:

Step 1: Request Services

All UCSC summer-session students entitled to exam accommodations request services during the first week of each Summer Session. Within 2 business days, DRC will email your Academic Access (AA) Letters to your UCSC email account.

    1. Go to myUCSC.
    2. Log in using your Cruz ID and Gold password.
    3. Go to “My Student Center” and select "Request Services".
    4. Select your exam accommodations for each class you require exam accommodations.
    5. Save to submit your request.

Step 2: Submit your Academic Access (AA) Letters to your Instructor

Step 3: Discuss your Accommodations with your Instructor

In a face-to-face meeting, discuss your testing needs with each instructor and determine:

    • Discuss what your accommodation needs are
    • Ask the instructor to make an anonymous announcement to recruit a notetaker if you received notification that a recruitment was necessary

Step 4: Follow Up

  • Contact your notetaker. You will not receive notes until you contact your notetaker directly.
