Financial Aid & Savings

Are you interested in participating in Transfer Edge, but wondering if you are eligible for summer financial aid? UC Santa Barbara offers a range of options designed to empower you to leverage summer to meet your educational goals, while keeping your world-class education affordable.

Financial aid packages are available to support summer study. Visit UC Santa Barbara’s Financial Aid website to learn more about summer aid, use the aid estimator tool, and submit a FAFSA. 

Transfer Edge students who wish to apply for summer financial aid must submit the 2023–2024 FAFSA as soon as possible, but no later than June 30, 2024. This form is in addition to your 2024–2025 FAFSA, which applies to the academic cycle beginning in Fall 2024.

In addition to other aid opportunities, UC Santa Barbara's Summer Grant provides eligible students with up to $3,500. The amount awarded is determined by a student's unit load.
