Request an Estimate from a Financial Aid Advisor

Want to know if you can afford to study abroad? Request an estimate of how much financial aid you can expect to receive. Remember that all programs have different costs, so decide on your program, or a couple that you are interested in, and then request a financial aid estimate.

- Your full name and student ID#
- The country and name of your UCSC Faculty-Led program, UCEAP program, or UC study abroad program
- When you plan to participate in the program
