Non-Continuing or Other UC Student

UC Berkeley students visit UC Davis.

As a student from another UC or a non-continuing UC Davis student, taking summer courses at UC Davis is a great way to explore new topics or completely focus on those difficult required classes.

You are considered an 'other UC student' if you are a UC student currently enrolled at or admitted for fall 2018 to a UC campus other than UC Davis.

You are considered a non-continuing UC Davis student if:

  • You have filed to graduate in Spring 2018 from UC Davis

  • You have withdrawn from UC Davis

  • You have been dismissed from UC Davis

Even though you are considered a UC student, an application is still required if you plan on enrolling in summer courses.

Steps for enrolling in Summer Sessions

Step 1: Complete the simple application form here.

There is no application fee for Summer Sessions. No transcripts or letters of recommendation are required to apply.  Once you submit your online application, you will receive an automated email with a confirmation number indicating that your application has been received.  In mid-April, all approved applicants will receive a separate activation email providing computing account, registration, and fee payment information.

Step 2: Apply for financial aid - deadline is in June.

As student from another UC, you may qualify for financial aid at UC Davis, but you must complete a separate application and submit all of the required information. You will need to submit the previous year’s FAFSA. Please refer to the Summer Financial Aid page for information on how to apply.  

Step 3: Choose your classes.

Summer Session courses compress ten weeks of instruction into six, so we strongly recommend that you take no more than 8 units per session.

Grades received from coursework completed during summer by non-continuing UC Davis students are factored into an overall GPA.

We offer hundreds of courses. Check out our courses page for information on how to search course offerings and register. Our course flyers will help you find information by college and major.   

Step 3a:  Talk to your advisor.

We recommend that you talk to your advisor at your university if you plan to transfer UC Davis coursework for credit towards your UC degree.

Step 4: Register for classes - opens April 30, 2018.

Use Schedule Builder to register for classes.

Participating in this educational program does not in itself provide preference in admission to the University of California. Students interested in applying to UC Davis should contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 530-752-2971 for details about the admissions process.
