Accelerate Your Path to Graduation With 2023 Summer Session

This summer at Cal State San Marcos, more than 200 in-person, online and hybrid courses will be open to CSUSM students as well as students from other universities and individuals in the community. Many courses can be completed in as little as five weeks, and students can earn up to 13 units during Summer@CSUSM: June 5-Aug. 12.

 Registration opens March 27 for CSUSM students and April 17 for the public. The summer schedule features in-demand courses from more than 40 academic departments, including chemistry, biology, communication, economics, literature and writing, history, mathematics and more. Offered on a compressed timeline, most courses can be completed in five-week or 10-week sessions. A selection of mathematics courses can be completed in eight weeks.



Full Block: June 5-Aug. 12

First Block: June 5-July 8

Second Block: July 10-Aug. 12

8-week Math Session: June 5-July 29


Courses are offered as stateside sections this summer, which opens new opportunities for  financial aid and summer funding — such as the State University Grant program and supplemental aid grants from the Chancellor’s Office — and students may now qualify for a tuition break based on the number of units they take. A popular summer payment plan is being offered again, allowing students to pay for courses in two installments if they desire.

 Students enrolled in summer session also have the option to live in campus housing, an excellent way to stay focused and thrive in summer classes at CSUSM. Accommodations will be offered June 2-July 31 or June 2-Aug. 13 at University Village Apartments and The Quad. New residents who apply for housing with the code Summer2023 in the housing application will receive an $800 discount on housing fees. Current residents will automatically receive the discount.

In addition to CSUSM students, Summer@CSUSM is open to students from other universities, qualified high school seniors and community members, who can register for courses without being formally admitted to the university. Credits from CSUSM courses are fully transferable to other academic institutions, and up to 24 units taken as a nonmatriculated student can be counted toward a CSUSM degree.

 The CSU requires the COVID vaccine and booster for all students, both matriculated and nonmatriculated, to participate in summer session.
