Important Updates

  • In observance of Juneteenth, Financial Aid and Scholarships will be closed on Wednesday, June 19, 2024
  • The Department of Education has announced they will send information from the 2024-25 FAFSA to schools in mid-March. This may result in a delay in financial aid packaging and offers for the 2024-25 academic year. While awaiting your financial aid offer, we encourage you to utilize the UC Davis Financial Aid Estimator to estimate your potential aid.

Summer Billing and Disbursement

Billing Information

Prior to the payment deadline, all authorized aid for the term will be credited to the student's UC Davis account. This will appear as “Estimated Financial Aid” and will apply toward the balance due. Current balances, and previous billing statements, can be viewed online at MyBill.

  • Students enrolled in less than six (6) units during Summer Session 1 or Special Sessions are responsible for paying Summer Session 1/ Special Session fees by the deadline.
  • Students combining units between Session 1, Special Session and Session 2 must meet the 6-unit requirement
    • Aid will not disburse until Summer Session 2. 
  • If there is a credit balance after the Estimated Financial Aid is posted, the student may receive a refund based on the Disbursement Schedule noted below.

Paying Tuition and Fees/Deadlines

For each session, prior to the payment deadline, any authorized aid listed on MyBill for the session will be credited to the student's UC Davis account to pay any outstanding charges for their current summer session.

  • Charges include tuition and fees, on-campus housing, etc.  
  • If there is a balance due after the Estimated Financial Aid has been posted, the student is responsible for paying the amount prior to the payment deadline.
  • If attending both Session 1 and Session 2, the estimated/authorized financial aid will be applied to both sessions.
  • If fees are not paid by the applicable fee deadline, students may be dropped from courses.

Summer Refunds

Students are responsible for managing any refunds received and expenses incurred while attending summer session(s). A student’s summer refund may be adjusted if the student has a prior balance on their account.
