Want more this summer?

At Pacific, we offer high-quality summer courses that can expand educational opportunities for our current students, future students, and the local community in a compact, five-week schedule. Summer Sessions can help you get ahead, catch up, try something new, expand your personal or professional horizons — and even earn while you learn through internships and experiential learning!

Something for Everyone

Members of the community can register for regular University courses without having to apply for admission to Pacific or submit transcripts. Individuals can advance academically and professionally through courses taught by our world-class faculty. Summer Sessions also gives both Pacific and non-Pacific students the ability to continue academic programs year-round at a reduced tuition rate. Students can take extra courses towards a minor or another major, investigate new interests, complete GE requirements or get an exceptionally challenging class out of the way without the distraction of other courses.

Summer Sessions student Emilie Jenkins
Why It's Worth It
Relax and focus

Graphic design major Emilie Jenkins wanted to add a minor in Business Leadership to her degree in order to advance her goal of becoming a creative director at a firm when she graduates. However, she couldn’t fit a course she needed into her fall or spring schedules. She took the class over the summer out of necessity but found a surprising advantage.

“The biggest benefit was being able to slow down and really learn the content. I gained foundational knowledge in that class because I was able to really focus on just that one subject. It will help me in my career as I eventually work to be a leader in the workplace."

Student Accounts

For information about Summer Sessions 2021 tuition and payment deadlines, visit the Summer Sessions Student Accounts page.

Financial Aid

Continuing Pacific students and new or returning students whose admission is effective in summer may qualify for assistance in the form of a Federal Student Loan. However, because program regulations restrict students to a maximum annual loan amount, borrowing for summer usually results in reduced loan eligibility during the regular academic year. Undergraduate students who qualify for Federal Pell Grants may also be eligible for Summer Pell Grant payments. Continuing and readmitted students must make satisfactory academic progress to qualify for financial aid. Please visit the Financial Aid & Cost website for more information.

Summer 2021 housing applications and rates are available through the Office of Residential Life and Housing for students who are registered for courses. Space is not guaranteed!

Please see the Office for Residential Life and Housing for more Summer III details.
