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 should fill out the 2021 – 2022 FAFSA as soon as possible, but no later than June 30th, 2022. Students who already completed a 2022 – 2023 FAFSA to apply for aid in Fall will still need to submit a 2021 – 2022 FAFSA as well. 


In addition to other aid opportunities, UC Santa Barbara's Summer Grant provides eligible students with a maximum of $3,000. The campus has dedicated $100,000 of additional aid to be distributed among eligible Transfer Edge students.
