What is Pay for Only 8?
For Summer Session 2021, we are offering a full-time fee incentive program for all current and incoming UC students*. Students will need to pay for up to only 8 units in per unit course fees.
For example, a current UCI undergraduate student enrolling on time in 12 units of coursework will pay $2,232 in course fees ($279/unit x 8 units), a $184 campus fee, plus any applicable course materials fees.
*Please note that the full-time fee incentive program does not apply to visiting non-UC students, to special programs charging a program fee in lieu of course fees, and any courses with other applicable discounts (such as independent study courses). Fees other than course fees will be charged according to the appropriate deadlines and policies for enrollments beyond 8 units. Course fees are pending final approval by the Regents of the University of California and are subject to change at any time for all campuses, including UC Irvine.
