Pay for only 8

Cost vary with the number of units taken and financial aid eligibility.

Students pay per unit course fees plus the mandatory non-refundable campus fee. Course materials fees (non-refundable) will also apply if applicable.

Transfer Edge students are considered admitted UC students, and can take advantage of the “Pay for Only 8” Incentive Program. Students will need to pay for only 8 units in per unit course fees, but by taking part in both six-week Summer Sessions, most students would complete 14 units total.

Financial aid is available to assist UCI students in meeting the costs of attending Summer Session. UCI Summer Grant funds and Direct Loans will be available to those students who meet eligibility requirements. To be eligible to apply for financial aid, you must plan to enroll in at least six units during the 2017 Summer Session. Note: some award packages require enrollment in more than six units.

For information about how to apply for Summer Financial Aid, visit the Enroll tab of our website.

The State of California requires that you be told the following: Federal student loans are available to most students regardless of income and provide a range of repayment options including income-based repayment plans and loan forgiveness benefits, which other education loans are not required to provide.
