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.

  • I currently have a billing for the winter quarter however I am enrolled in 12 units and am supposed to receive financial aid. Why is my financial aid not covering the billing? 
  • Financial aid will disburse funds for the winter quarter by December 15, 2021. Student Accounting posts billing before the December 15 winter quarter fee deadline to allow students to pay for any remaining balance they may have on their account after financial aid disburses. Students can view their MyBill account for more information. Refunds for the winter quarter will be available on January 3, 2022. For more information on refunds, please visit Student Accounting.

  • I am an international student and I submitted the HEERF III/ARP application. When will I receive my ARP award?  
  • Eligible international students who applied to the ARP award have been awarded the grant through MyAwards. Students who submitted the application, but haven’t received any funding, will receive an email regarding eligibility. If additional information is requested, submit the documents as soon as possible.

  • How will my financial aid be affected if I am graduating in the fall quarter (or winter)? Do I get to keep the full aid shown on MyAwards? What steps do I need to take? ​​​​​​​ 

  • Students planning to graduate during the fall quarter or who make changes to enrollment throughout the academic year must submit an Enrollment Status Change Form. Financial aid will not be disbursed for the terms in which students are not enrolled. 

  • If I am planning to take a fifth year, how would this affect my financial aid?  
  • Regardless of which year a student is enrolled, students who plan to receive financial aid for the next academic year must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). These standards include receiving a cumulative 2.0 GPA and passing 67% of attempted units. Maximum timeframe program standards may also affect financial aid ability as the Maximum Attempted Units for undergraduates is 270 units. Please ensure to submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADAA) by the March 2nd deadline for each upcoming academic year. 

  • How can I be considered part-time for winter 2022? Would it affect my financial aid?​​​​​​​ 
  • Students will first need to petition for part-time status with the Office of the University Registrar (OUR). Once a student is confirmed with OUR as having part-time status for the quarter, tuition adjustments will be made within 1- 2 business weeks. Financial Aid and Scholarships will generally reduce a part-time student’s aid by the same amount that OUR reduces tuition. This reduction in aid will be reflected 4-6 business weeks after OUR’s tuition adjustment. Both the Cal Grant and the Pell Grant are unit-sensitive which means that if a student is enrolled in less than 12 units, and is not officially registered as part-time, only a percentage of these grants will be disbursed, based on the number of units in which the student is enrolled. Visit Changes That May Affect Your Aid for details. 

HEERF Update: 

  • As of May 11, 2021, the Department of Education released revised guidance that undocumented and international students are eligible to receive HEERF. How has UC Davis implemented these changes?
  • As of May 11, 2021, when the revised guidance was released, UC Davis had allocated and expensed its HEERF and HEERF II allotment. However, HEERF III funding will be awarded to all eligible students based on the new guidance. For information on HEERF I, II, and III (CARES Act, CRRSAA, and ARP), visit Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds FAQs.
  • Schedule update: 
  • Our office will be providing services remotely through January 28, 2022.
  • Phone call wait times may be longer than usual and we appreciate your patience.
