Current Degree-Seeking Students

If you're a current degree-seeking undergraduate or graduate student who has enrolled in a CU Boulder class within the past 12 months, then you do not need to apply for Summer Session. You may enroll in summer classes through CU Boulder Class Search.

If you have questions about your eligibility to enroll in summer classes or about transferring to a different major, contact your academic advisor.
