Summer 2014 at CSU Channel Islands

Summer Session at CI is back! Enrollment is open to all current CI students, students from other two- and four-year institutions, juniors and seniors in high school, and other interested persons from the community. 

If you are a continuing CI student...
Summer at CI offers you an opportunity to catch up, speed up or round out your graduation requirements.
If you are a student at another college or university and are spending the summer in Ventura County...
CSU Channel Islands offers a unique, diverse selection of courses which may satisfy your school’s core requirements.
If you are a high school junior or senior in the fall...
Use the summer to strengthen your college application and focus on an area you always wanted to know more about or are considering as a major.
(Some courses require the approval of the instructor or completion of prerequisites.  Please see the CI catalog for details.   Formal admission to the University is not required to enroll in courses in the summer, and conversely enrolling in does not constitute or ensure regular admission to the University.)

Note: Some courses may have additional lab fees.  Fees are subject to change by the Trustees of the California State University and/or the campus President.  The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum.  Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate.  Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees, without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter had begun.  All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by The Board of Trustees.  The fees listed here will be contingent upon the decision by the Legislature.  These fees do not apply to special session degree credit courses and programs, or state-supported courses scheduled in the summer.

Applicability of Summer Session Courses to Degree Programs
Courses taken in Summer Session are applicable to the programs of any CI matriculated student (i.e. a student who is admitted to and enrolled in any CI degree/credential/certificate program, in good academic standing in the Spring of 2014, and who did not graduate in Spring 2014) in the same way that Fall or Spring semester courses are applicable. Non-matriculated students (those not admitted to and enrolled in a CI degree program) may apply a maximum of 24 credit units taken as a non-matriculated student to any CI baccalaureate degree program to which they might later apply. Non-matriculated students may only apply up to nine credit units taken as a non-matriculated student to any CI graduate degree, credential, or graduate credit certificate program to which they might later apply. In all cases, which courses taken as a non-matriculated student shall apply to a particular degree, credential or certificate program is the decision of the department chair responsible for that program.  All courses offered in the CI Summer Session are regular CI academic credit courses and are fully transferable to other institutions. However, it is always up to the receiving institution to determine how transferred courses will be applied to any of its own particular academic programs. Students who are enrolled in or plan to enroll in programs at other colleges or universities for the 2014/2015 academic year should seek guidance from these institutions regarding which CI Summer Session courses would be most appropriate as related to their individual academic goals.
