Important Announcements

Financial Aid and Scholarships is committed to providing information and resources to financially support the educational goals of our prospective and enrolled students. We strive to provide service in a timely, equitable, and caring manner.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are experiencing a higher than usual volume of inquiries and workload and we thank you in advance for your patience during these unprecedented times. We also invite you to review our weekly Hot Topics and FAQs for immediate answers to the most common questions.

  • Financial Aid and Scholarships phone lines will be closed on Fridays beginning June 19, 2020, through August 2020. 
  • For information on the federal CARES Act relief funds and Additional COVID-19 Support, see CARES Act FAQs.
  • You may submit any Financial Aid and Scholarships questions to our Contact an Expert portal.
  • Please allow up to 7 - 10 business days for responses.
  • Due to the campus closure, our front desk is closed until further notice.

Hot Topics of the Week !

Based on inquiries by phone and email, below are the top five topics of the week. For more questions and answers, visit Frequently Asked Questions.

  • How will financial aid for the summer be disbursed for Summer Session 1 and/or 2?
  • Financial aid for Summer Session 1 was disbursed on June 12. Disbursement for Summer Session 2 will be on July 24. If the student is enrolled for 10 or more units, the Summer Advantage grant will be disbursed July 17 for Session 1 and August 28 for Session 2. For more information on refunds and summer payments, see Summer 2020 Master Calendar.
  •  I have been selected for Verification and I have submitted the required documents. When will Verification be completed?
  • The deadline to submit all Verification requirements for the 2020-21 academic year is July 15, 2020. The Verification process will take 6-8 business weeks to review.

  • Why is my financial aid award for 2020-21 different from 2019-20?  
  • There are several factors that can affect your financial award. These include, but are not limited to, changes in your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), changes in housing status, or if your 2020-21 FAFSA was submitted after the filing date of March 2, 2020.
  •  If I have a zero Expected Family Contribution (EFC), can I submit an EFC appeal to receive more financial aid? 
  • If your Student Aid Report reflects an EFC of $0, this indicates you have already been offered the maximum amount of Financial Aid available at UC Davis. Submitting a Family Contribution appeal cannot further decrease your EFC of $0, and therefore will not make you eligible for additional financial aid. For alternative resources, visit Documenting Additional Expenses, under 2020-21 Appeals and Additional Expenses.
  • What are my options if my financial aid situation has changed?  
  • If you have experienced a change in household income, see Family Contributions Review for information and appeal instructions.
