Coronavirus Resources and Updates

On behalf of all the staff at Summer Session, we understand that the rapidly changing environment you as students are experiencing is unprecedented.

With that in mind, our team is working collaboratively with all units and stakeholders on campus to make course offerings a seamless experience for you. We hope that the added flexibility of having more courses available online will help you make some additional progress toward your degree.

A Letter from Vice Provost Michael Dennin

Dear UCI Community – We write today to provide an update on Summer Quarter instruction, which will follow the same general plans as fall/winter/spring quarters. Most undergraduate courses will be taught remotely.

Any in-person courses will require exceptional approval consistent with the latest public health guidance. Please visit for the most up-to-date information regarding summer courses.

Graduate courses will be allowed to be held in person with appropriate public health practices and procedures in place assuming we are in “red tier” or better. Course-related fieldwork and practicums for graduate work will maintain the same procedures as the Spring quarter, with authority to approve those resting with the Schools in which those courses live. Regular updates will be provided as to which courses, if any, will be offered in person. The latest student resources continue to be available on the UCI Forward Website.
