Dear Undergraduates:

I hope you are having a restful and rejuvenating summer. I write with some important information you will need if you are taking classes this summer, including updates on registration; billing; financial aid; Pass/No Pass; important dates; course load limits; and Library and Learning Commons access. Additionally, this email contains information about the Summer Tutoring pilot program and the extension of the Summer Sessions Grant program that launched in the spring.

Summer Course Information

Summer is a great time to fulfill Core, major, and minor requirements. If you are considering enrolling in summer classes, you can still enroll in Sessions 2 and 3C. Payment of all costs is required before Santa Clara will register students for their summer courses. Please email One Stop ( or call (408) 551-1000 for assistance. 

For those of you who are enrolled in summer classes, the latest summer bills were made available to view on eCampus on June 30, and tuition is due by July 21. If someone else pays your tuition, please notify the individual that your summer bill is now available. Authorized Payers can view the billing statement using the Authorized Payer site, SCU Pay.

Pass/No Pass Policy
Pass/No Pass (P/NP) returned to the standard policy this summer. Students may take one summer class P/NP. Information about the policy is available in the 2020-2021 Undergraduate Bulletin. The deadlines to declare P/NP for summer classes are posted on the Summer Sessions 2021 calendar.    

Summer Sessions Calendar
Please review the Summer Sessions 2021 calendar for important information, including tuition refund dates. Please be especially mindful of the deadlines to drop classes to receive 100% tuition refund (less fees). It is critical that all class drop activity is completed prior to the posted deadlines, which are in Pacific Daylight Time.  

Summer Course Load Limits Policy
The intensive pace of Sessions 1, 2, and 3 require the following restrictions on summer course loads:

  • Session 1: Students may not enroll in more than 10 units during this session.
  • Session 2: Students may not enroll in more than 10 units during this session.
  • Session 3 (A, B and C): Students may not enroll in or attend more than one Session 3 lab science (chemistry or physics) course at a time. If enrolled in or attending a Session 3 lab science course, students may not be simultaneously enrolled in or attending a Session 1, 2, or 4 course. 

COVID-19 Protocols
As a reminder, all students and faculty participating in in-person classes are required to wear masks. However, SCU has lifted the 3-feet social distancing requirement. Individuals participating in in-person classes are required to be vaccinated or tested weekly for COVID-19 through our campus testing clinic. You may register your vaccination status at the Cowell Health Center between 9 a.m. and noon Monday and Tuesday of each week. If you have already registered your vaccination status, you do not need to do so again. If you have not registered your vaccination status, you are required to be tested weekly for COVID-19. Please visit Prepared SCU for more information about SCU’s COVID-19 Testing Protocol.
