Summer Session

Dive into summer. Get ahead. Graduate sooner.


San Diego State University summer courses can help you get ahead in your coursework and stay connected to your professors and the campus over the summer. SDSU is offering hundreds of online courses in three short sessions. Taking just one summer session course can put you on track to graduate on time or leave room in your schedule for an internship, a job, participation in a student organization next year, or other valuable experience.

  • See the student success fee at work. The fee helps SDSU pay the faculty needed for summer courses.

  • Online courses let you work, travel, and relax while still getting the job done in the (virtual) classroom.

Tuition and Fees and Financial Aid

Visit the Money Matters web page for more information about summer tuition and fees.

The type and amount of financial aid available for attending the summer session depends on your need as determined using the information on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), your summer enrollment, and available funding. Part time enrollment is required for loan eligibility. Summer aid will be determined using remaining aid eligibility for the academic year. If you are eligible for a summer financial aid fee postponement, you will receive a notice on AidLink.

To be considered for summer financial aid you must

  • Be a continuing student from the spring semester or a new student who plans to enroll at SDSU for the fall semester.
  • File a FAFSA for the 2021-22 year and have an Award Notification from the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
