In order to be eligible for summer aid, students need to enroll in a minimum of 6 units (half-time status).
Aid will be subject to cancellation if you drop below half-time status. Some programs (Federal Pell Grant and Summer University Grant) require enrollment in 12 units to receive full eligibility. Financial Aid and Scholarships will review all units at the end of the third week of each UCLA summer session (the census date) in order to determine your eligibility for summer aid. If you are not enrolled in the number of units on which their award was based on will be billed. Adding units after the census date will not reinstate your eligibility.
RETURN OF TITLE IV AID FUNDS
If you receive financial aid and subsequently do not enroll in Summer Sessions for which you were awarded or if you drop all your units for the session for which you received aid, you may be billed for a portion of aid received. The calculation of Return of Title IV funds is based on published schedules and the date that you cancel your registration or the date you drop all classes during a summer session.
Under federal regulations, summer is considered a single term of enrollment and students who cease attendance before the end of the period for which aid was awarded will be considered as having withdrawn. Here are a few examples of situations that will be treated as withdrawals in the summer:
- You are awarded aid for sessions A and C but do not attend session C. You will have completed 6 of 12 weeks of enrollment resulting in recalculation of your financial aid eligibility.
- You are awarded aid for session A and C but drop units in session A after 3 weeks and drop units in session C after 3 weeks. In total, you will have completed 6 of 12 weeks during the summer and your eligibility for aid will be recalculated.
- You are awarded aid for session A (10 weeks) and drop classes after the third week of instruction. You will have completed 3 of 10 weeks and your eligibility for aid will be recalculated.
EXAMPLE OF SUMMER AID RECALCULATION

Any time your summer enrollment plans change and you are considering enrolling in different sessions or fewer units than indicated on your summer application, it is recommended that you contact Financial Aid and Scholarships to find out if your changes in summer enrollment will decrease your eligibility for aid.
Financial Aid and Scholarships will start awarding for summer aid in May. If you apply on time, you will receive your summer Financial Aid Notification (FAN) by mid-June. We will notify you via e-mail when your summer FAN becomes available.
For students enrolled in sessions A and C, financial aid for both sessions will be disbursed at the beginning of session A. For students enrolled in Session C only, aid will be disbursed at the end of July.
