Financial Aid & Incentives

Transfer Edge students who wish to apply for summer financial aid should fill out the 2019 – 2020 FAFSA as soon as possible, but no later than June 30th, 2020. Students who already completed a 2020 – 2021 FAFSA to apply for aid in Fall will still need to submit a 2019 – 2020 FAFSA as well. For additional information, visit UC Santa Barbara’s Financial Aid website.  

Special Financial Incentives

In addition to any federal financial aid you may receive, there are other opportunities to save money while still availing yourself of all that Transfer Edge has to offer.

  • UC Santa Barbara's Summer Grant provides eligible students with a maximum of $3000.

  • The campus has dedicated $100,000 of additional aid to be distributed among eligible Transfer Edge students. 

  • Enroll in 12 units or more during Transfer Edge and you may be eligible to receive additional aid to offset housing costs. Learn more about our housing incentive.

  • All Edge participants receive their online “Major Exploration” course tuition-free.  Students can choose from three courses specifically designed to bolster academic success. Learn more about the options on our Courses page.
