It is possible. Financial aid is available for students who are admitted to an eligible degree program and enrolled in financial aid eligible courses through EEGO. Financial aid eligible courses are typically courses that are equivalent to main campus degree requirements.
The two main sources of aid you could qualify for summer session are federal direct loans and Pell grants:
You may receive a portion of your loans for summer if you did not use your total annual limit in fall and spring semesters.
Year-round Pell went into effect this year, which means you may receive a full Pell grant in fall, spring and summer (for full-time units). Undergrads are recommended to enroll in at least half-time (6 units) to receive a Pell grant for summer.
State University Grant (SUG)
Classes through EEGO are not eligible for State University Grant. Only main campus State University Fees can be paid with SUG.
There is no need to request financial aid for summer. Just enroll and you will be packaged with the financial aid you are eligible to receive!
Yes, almost anyone can take classes during Summer Session. Those who are at least 18 years of age can take classes through Extended Education. Academically disqualified CSUB students, students from other universities/colleges, and community members are all welcome to register by completing a registration form and emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
No - students will not be dropped from a course for non-attendance. Students who choose not to attend class (in-person or online) will still be responsible for tuition and fees incurred as a result of their enrollment in Summer Session 2021. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for drop dates and the Refund Policy for complete refund details.
It is the student’s responsibility to drop/withdraw from a course. Students are responsible for all associated fees and completing drop/withdraw requests. Partial charges may be posted on your student account depending on the drop date even though students did not make a payment.
Not attending a course does not mean a student will be automatically dropped from that course. Failure to drop/withdraw from a course in which one is officially registered but does not complete, will result in a grade of “F” or No Credit (NC).
Refunds are based on the date when the official withdrawal is received in the Extended Education office. If you need to drop a class, you may do so via your myCSUB account, in person, email (email@example.com), fax, or mail through the Extended Education office. The day you drop online or when the form is received, is the official date of withdrawal and determines the amount eligible for refund.
Yes, for those who are continuing CSUB students. Continuing CSUB students will meet with their academic advisors either within Undergraduate Advising Services or within the appropriate School.
Summer Session enrollment is capped at 12 units for each student. The 12-unit maximum includes all three summer sessions – 10-Week, 5-Week I, and 5-Week 2. For example, if a student enrolls in 12 units during the 10-Week session, the maximum will have been reached and the student would not be eligible to enroll in either of the five-week sessions.
Fee waiver availability for CSUB faculty, staff, and eligible dependents are not available for Summer 2021. Most other fee waivers are not applicable during a self-support summer, including CA Veteran, 60+ Club, Concurrent Enrollment, and Cal Vet. See Fee Waiver section for additional details.

It is recommended that students confirm in advance with their home institution the eligibility to have specific CSUB course units accepted in transfer to satisfy their home institution's degree requirements. The student is responsible for completing any requirements outlined by the home institution to transfer credit back to the institution.
