Top High School Students Can Dip Into a Summer Subject at UCR

Top high school students have the opportunity to test out a major or pursue a new interest by taking a college class at UC Riverside this summer.

High-achieving school students have the opportunity to test out a major or pursue a new interest by taking a college class at UC Riverside this summer. Apply early. The program has room for just 150 high school students each year. Students must have a 3.5 GPA or above.

The classes come with an orientation, a campus tour and a lunch time discussion about what it’s like to be an undergraduate at UCR.

Summer Academy program participants choose from courses offered in Session 1 (June 20 – July 23, 2016), Session 2 (July 25 – August 27, 2016) and Session 6 (June 20 – August 6, 2016). Course fees range from $723-$876 for a 5-week session, with financial aid available for eligible students.

New this year, Summer Academy will be offering a cohort program for students to take one class and participate in co-curricular programs together during Session 1 (Monday-Thursday, 8am-4pm). Students select one course from either Chemistry, Theater, or Psychology.

“We do not recommend taking more than one course if this is your first time participating in the Summer Academy,” said Christine Victorino, assistant vice provost of undergraduate education. “The courses are accelerated and the expectations are high, but offer incredible opportunities to learn about the overall college experience.”
