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 towards 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/ Special Sessions are responsible for paying Summer Session 1/ Special Session fees by the deadline. If students are combining units between Session 1/ Special Session and Session 2 to 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 the current summer session to the University (i.e., tuition and fees, on-campus housing, etc.). This will appear as Estimated Financial Aid and will pay any outstanding balance for that session. Current balances, and previous billing statements, can be viewed online at MyBill.

  • 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 fees are not paid by the applicable fee deadline, students may be dropped from courses. For details on the Undergraduate drop for non-payment process please visit Summer Sessions Drop for Non-Payment Page (scroll to the middle of the page for non-payment details).

Most financial aid will be credited to students' accounts on the following dates:

  • Session 1/Special Session: June 13, 2022
