By University policy, summer fees are based on the fees charged in the subsequent academic year. Fees for 2021 Summer Session are pending the state’s final budget and approval by the Regents of the University of California. Fees are subject to change, and may be adjusted at any time. Please be aware that you, as the student, are ultimately responsible for all Summer Session Fees incurred. You can make your payment with cash, check (payable to UC Regents), or credit card (VISA, MasterCard, or American Express).
