Chico State Summer Boost Program

Based on your class standing and other factors, you may be eligible for a free Summer Boost class designed specifically for students who were unsuccessful in their first attempt at a critical 100- or 200-level course. Most classes are online, so you can participate from wherever the summer finds you.

This opportunity is not available to all students. To be eligible for a Summer Boost class, you must have:

  • Received a non-passing grade during fall '22, spring '23, fall '23, or spring '24
  • Have a '23-'24 FASFA or CADAA on file and have a financial need
  • Completed a registration request form

Can I take more than one class?

You can request up to two classes from the list below, indicating your first and second choices on the request form. If space and funding are available, we will enroll you in both classes and send you a confirmation. We recommend taking classes during different dates to keep the work load manageable and give you the best chance for success in the class. 

How do I register?

Seats in Summer Boost classes are limited and are first-come, first-served. Review the available classes below and submit the online registration request form as soon as possible. Note: You cannot register for these classes in your student center. 

Once your request has been reviewed and you've been enrolled, we’ll send you a confirmation email.
