Application Process

Step 1.  Apply Online

Non-SCU, Non-Degree seeking SCU and incoming fall 2019 transfer students, SCU alumni, and SCU graduate students must complete and submit the 2019 Summer Sessions Visiting Student Application. Please note: verification of enrollment/good standing, including a cumulative grade point average of "C" or better from the student's home institution, must be provided to Santa Clara University. Applicants are able to upload their transcript to the application.  The application fee of $80 is due upon submission of the application for new Summer students. Applications are processed in the order in which they are received. Applications take approximately 3-5 business days to be processed.

Application Submission Verification: Every student who submits an application will receive an email acknowledging successful submission of the application once the application fee (if applicable) has been processed. 

Welcome Email: Summer Sessions will send a welcome email to all accepted students. This email will contain information on how to make pay their tuition deposit. Please note that this is the only correspondence students will receive at their preferred email address.  All future email correspondence will be sent to the student's SCU Gmail account.

Step 2.  Pay Tuition Deposit (After Students Receive the Welcome Email)

The tuition deposit of $2,840 (the amount for a 4-unit course) must be received prior to class registration. The $2,840 deposit will be credited toward tuition and used to decrease the amount billed. Santa Clara University does not accept credit cards for payment of tuition and fees. To make your deposit:

  6. Choose "Checkout" and follow the prompts to enter your banking information to remit a successful payment. A receipt will be emailed to you.

 Any remaining balance will be billed and due on the 21st of the same month. Billing is done electronically; therefore, please be sure to review your SCU email account for billing notifications.

Please note: beginning June 17, students are required to prepay their tuition before the University will register them for a summer course.
