High schooler planning to attend UC Irvine Summer Session ...FINANCIAL AID?!

I'm currently a sophomore in high school and wish to take Introduction to Financial Investments for Session 1 and possibly Intermediate Economics I for Session 2 if my financial resources permit... It will run me around $2,400 for two classes (8 units), and $1,400 for only one class (4 units)...but either way, how generous is the Financial Aid for UC Irvine's summer classes? Hopefully atleast $500 off the tuition? =(

    I don't think they give financial aid (grants) to non-UC students. I looked it up and all i can find is loans.. https://summer.uci.edu/services/financial/aid/private_loans.aspx
    Is there a reason you want to take courses at a UC rather than community college? And you already meet the pre-reqs for those classes?! I think that the Investment course actually requires the intermediate Econ series as a pre-reqs, but idk if the pre-reqs get dropped for summer session.

    Also for intermediate economics 1 isn't that 100A? which has econ 20a/b series as requirements.

    I think for the summer they take off the major restrictions but not the pre-req requirements.

    Also 132A needs the entire 100 series +15 series i think

    econ 100a is relatively easy and if it's anything like 105a(the harder version which I took) if you're bright you can ace it by just bringing a ti83 to your exams

    prereq checking is off during the summer. econ 100a is fine to take, not sure about 132, 132 might be a bit more of a stretch.
