Your financial aid eligibility will cover the total cost of your program. Your program budget consists of tuition, fees, room and board, insurance, roundtrip airfare, incidentals, transportation. It does not include personal entertainment expenses and leisure travel.
EAP students are awarded based on their program budget. If your EAP budget is greater than the UCSB budget, you will be awarded additional loan eligibility. If your EAP budget is less than the UCSB budget, your financial aid will be reduced.
- All types of financial aid are available during the academic year, including institutional aid, state aid, federal grants, scholarships, Cal Vet Tuition Waiver, federal and private loans. Unfortunately, Post 9/11 GI Bill and other federal VA Education Benefits (besides Cal Vet Tuition Waiver) cannot be used for EAP programs at this time. Work-Study cannot be used abroad and will be converted into additional loan eligibility.
- Financial aid for summer programs are limited to residual Pell Grant, unaccepted Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans from the academic year or additional Direct Parent Plus Loan/ Private Loans. Students with financial need who filed the FAFSA or CADAA on time, could be eligible for a UCSB Summer Scholarship. The exact amount of the UCSB Summer Scholarship will not be known until closer to the summer. No additional applications are required during the summer to receive financial aid.
Be sure apply or accept your loans as early as possible in order to avoid delays.
