UC Davis Aggie Grant Plan
What is the Aggie Grant Plan?
The Aggie Grant Plan is a UC Davis financial aid program created specifically for students from middle-income families. Our campus strongly believes in providing access to higher education for all students, and recognizes that middle-income families need additional financial support.
Eligible students with family incomes between $80,000 and $120,000 and parent assets below $200,000 (excluding personal residence) will have up to 25% of their systemwide – or base – tuition and fees covered by gift aid. Base tuition and fees for 2016-2017 are $12,294, so the Aggie Grant Plan covers up to $3,074. However, it is important to note that no student will receive more grant support than their calculated financial need. Base tuition and fees are subject to change; any revisions to the tuition and/or fee amounts will affect the Aggie Grant award amount as well. If you qualify, you will be awarded a University Middle Income Grant to cover the designated amount as part of your financial aid package.
