In-State Tuition Benefits
Summer Quarter is unique in that it is the only optional quarter in the academic year, and as such, things happen a little differently! All students pay the same tuition and fees as a California resident during the summer months, allowing international and out-of-state students to benefit from cost savings while making progress to degree. To learn more about the structure of fees in the summer, visit our Cost of Attendance page.
In recent years, UC Santa Barbara has offered a summer housing incentive, to support students who wish to leverage Summer Sessions to achieve their educational goals. This incentive credits eligible undergraduate students living in campus housing with up to $1000*! This incentive is intended to support students in making the most of summer by focusing on coursework, while living in free or substantially subsidized housing. We anticipate that this incentive will be continued in Summer 2022. Check back during Winter Quarter for eligibility requirements and information on the application process.
