FSSP students can start strong at UC Santa Barbara by taking advantage of a variety of ways to save in the summer! Students will be considered for financial aid after submitting the 2023–2024 FAFSA, and should do so as soon as possible, but no later than June 30th, 2024. This form is in addition to your 2024–2025 FAFSA, which applies to the academic cycle beginning in Fall 2024.
For additional information, review Financial Aid's informational flyer, or visit UC Santa Barbara's Financial Aid Website. Students will be awarded aid once their file is complete and all the documents have been processed. Generally, students are awarded in mid-July. In 2021, almost $1 million in aid was distributed to FSSP students.
Note: If you are a student who has a Veterans College Fee Waiver, visit the veterans page for more information regarding this benefit.
