Financial Aid

The UC San Diego Financial Aid Office is pleased to provide financial aid, for those that qualify, to assist with educational costs for attending the Academy. You will be given the opportunity to apply for financial aid, when you apply for admission (Part 2) to the Academy. Here is a brief preview of the financial aid application:

  • U.S. Citizens and eligible Permanent Residents will be asked to submit 2016-17 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
  • AB 540 eligible students will be asked to submit the 2016-17 California Dream Act Application.
  • International students are not eligible. Federal and State regulations preclude awarding financial aid to international students.
  • You will also be asked whether you would like to authorize the UC San Diego Financial Aid Office to release your financial aid information to the UC San Diego Summer Academy.

Your enrollment and registration in the Academy will follow the calendar and deadlines as given in the Academy calendar.
