Summer Financial Aid Application Process

  • For continuing UC Davis students attending Summer Sessions on our campus or participating in Summer Abroad through our campus, your registration serves as your application for summer financial aid. Enroll for summer classes as soon as your registration appointment time is available. If attending both sessions, make sure you enroll in both sessions at the same time. Please refer to the Summer Sessions website for information on courses, registration, important dates and other information.
  • For students attending UC Davis AND another UC over the summer, please submit a Summer Financial Aid Application.
  • Summer is considered one term for financial aid purposes. To be eligible for summer aid, you must be enrolled or waitlisted in at least six (6) units total during the summer term.
  • Summer financial aid is awarded based on the earliest date that you are registered or waitlisted in at least six (6) units, and the amount you receive is based on the total number of units and sessions you are enrolled in. Please review our Billing and Disbursement webpage for additional details.
  • Once you are successfully packaged, you will receive an email notification to your UC Davis email address to view MyAwards. Please note that modifications to your enrollment may result in a change to your financial aid package, including in a possible reduction of grant and/or limiting your aid to loans. Please review our Cancelling or Withdrawing webpage for important information on changes to enrollment.
  • You can use the Summer Change in Aid form (available at a later date) to request additional loans based on your eligibility.
  • For Newly Admitted Freshmen and Transfer Students, UC Davis students attending summer at another UC campus, or students from another UC campus attending UC Davis, please see the index at the left for information regarding your application process.
