Summer Session


2023 Sessions
First 6-week session (6W1): May 30 – July 9
Second 6-week session (6W2): July 10 – August 20
Full 12-week session (12W): May 30 – August 20

Summer Session offers Sac State and visiting students the opportunity to take classes over the summer during two 6-week sessions and one 12-week session.

The short sessions allow students the flexibility to complete graduation requirements and advance toward degree goals while pursuing other interests over the summer.

Students should login to the MySacState and click on “Search the Class Schedule” for real-time class schedule information, including the number of open seats.

What if the class I need is full? Will departments add more sections to the schedule?

Courses are offered at the discretion of faculty, deans and provost who determine if courses are appropriate to offer in summer and winter sessions. If you have questions about course offerings or want to see a class added to the schedule, please contact the department overseeing the specific course you want (for example: ENGL 1 is offered by the English department). Your feedback helps create summer schedules containing the classes you need to graduate faster.
