Summer Financial Aid and Loan

Summer Financial Aid

Are you a Berkeley student wondering if you're eligible for summer financial aid? UC Berkeley offers a range of programs designed to keep a world-class Berkeley education affordable - including financing your summer.

  • Visit the Financial Aid & Scholarships website to learn more.
  • Get an estimate of how much financial aid you might receive by logging into CalCentral and navigating to the Financial Resources under My Finances to select Summer Cost and Aid Estimator.

Summer Sessions Loan

The Summer Sessions loan now offers expanded eligibility for students enrolled in at least 6 units in any single UC Berkeley summer session or combination of sessions, Berkeley Summer Abroad program, and summer UC Education Abroad Program (UCEAP). Students who received the Middle Class Scholarship (MCS) may qualify for this low-interest, subsidized loan.

Visiting students are not eligible for aid from UC Berkeley. Please speak to the financial aid office at your home institution for advisement on financial resources.
