Summer Students

Eligibility Requirements
Summer Financial aid is available for current and newly matriculated UC Santa Cruz students who enroll in UCSC Summer Session or in summer at another UC campus. The "priority" enrollment date for most students is June 1. A 2018-19 FAFSA (or Dream Application) must be on file with our school code no later than June 27.

Students must:

  • Complete 6+ credits to be considered for federal and state aid including a Summer Pell Grant (if Pell eligible)
  • Complete 10+ credits and be a California resident to be considered for the Summer University Grant 

Students should not expect the same amount of aid available during fall, winter, spring. If you do not receive aid or can pay tuition on your own, these credit minimums do not apply to you. 

The tuition fee (per credit) for summer is $279 with a one time campus fee of $283.
