Summer Financial Aid
Some financial aid is available for current UC Santa Cruz students who enroll in either UCSC Summer Session or in summer at another UC. If you plan to enroll at another UC Campus, you must complete and submit the Summer Intercampus Financial Aid Application to our office no later than June 20, 2014. Students should not expect to receive as much financial aid as is available during fall, winter and spring quarters.
Students who have been re admitted to the University for fall 2013 and wish to attend summer session need to get approval from their College Adviser and submit a 2013-2014 FAFSA by June 30, 2014.
To be considered for summer aid, you must enroll by June 20, 2014. Undergraduate students must enroll in a minimum of 10 credits to be considered for campus based aid. For state and federal aid, you must enroll in a minimum of 6 credits. If you are a graduate student you must enroll in a minimum of 5 credits.
Receiving Summer Aid
If you are eligible for financial aid, the Summer Session Office will NOT require you to pay your tuition and fees before you receive your aid. Your financial aid will be applied to your Summer Session charges a few days prior to the beginning of the session in which you are enrolled.
If you enroll at another UC Campus, your financial aid from UC Santa Cruz will be paid to you directly and it is your responsibility to pay your summer charges.
If your aid does not pay all your charges, you are responsible for paying the remaining charges. If your aid exceeds your charges, Student Business Services will refund financial aid credit balances remaining after all UC Santa Cruz Summer Session charges are paid on or around the first day of the session you attend.
