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. In general, if your EAP budget is higher than the UCSB budget, you will be offered more loans to cover the increase. If your EAP budget is lower, you will receive less financial aid.
- All types of financial aid are available during the academic year, including institutional aid, state aid, federal grants, scholarships, federal and private loans, Cal Vet Tuition Waiver, Post 9/11 GI Bill, and other VA Education Benefits (you must be eligible). 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.
