Our Best Answer - What summer aid is available?

Summer Aid Availability

Summer aid is typically more restricted than aid during the normal academic year, and is limited to a small amount of UCSB Grant (for those that qualify) and any remaining Direct Loan eligibility that you did not use during the academic year.

Each year our office publishes a Summer Aid Calculator in mid-April for student’s to use to estimate their aid eligibility for the coming summer.
