Summer Session

Rise and Shine for Summer Session. Registration is now open.

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 offers a twelve week term (T1) and four sessions ranging from four to eight weeks in length (S1-4) to fit your summer schedule. 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, or participation in a student organization next year.

Learn about courses for new students.

  • See the student success fee at work. The fee helps SDSU pay the faculty needed for summer courses.
  • SDSU courses showcase innovative instructional technology and practices.
  • Online courses let you work, travel, and relax while still getting the job done in the (virtual) classroom.
  • On-campus summer housing enables you to enjoy the San Diego sunshine and SDSU campus while getting one step closer to graduation. The summer housing application will be available on the Housing Portal in early April.
