Our students are hard-chargers who don’t slow down, even for a summer break. That’s why we’ve put together a set of summer courses for students wishing to further their degree, begin a certificate or simply take a course or two. UCCS offers two summer sessions, starting in June and ending in August.

Summer Session works in tandem with our online and weekend courses to help students achieve in-demand degrees through nontraditional and flexible means. Our students still have access to top-tier support systems, award-winning facilities and knowledgable faculty members.

Important Update for 2020 Summer Session

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we've made the difficult decision to hold all summer courses in a remote environment, with the exception of internship, clinical and field placement classes. Those may be offered in person if safe host locations are available.

Unfortunately, this means that some classes may no longer be offered this summer. Colleges and faculty will determine if a specific course can be taught effectively in a remote manner. The faculty will work with the Registrar's Office to update the course availability as those decisions are made. We expect it will be a limited number.

Students can register for summer classes now in their MyUCCS portal, knowing those courses listed as meeting in person will transition to remote by the Registrar soon. If a class is ultimately canceled, you will receive notification and not be charged for that course. Registration deadlines for the summer session are available at
