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 was recently admitted to UC Davis, however, I am still unable to see my financial aid award for the 2021-22 academic year. Why?  
  • Incoming students should confirm that the UC Davis school code (001313) is reflected in their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application. Students can also send us a Student Aid Report (SAR) of your FAFSA/Dream Act Application through Contact An Expert
  • If my Expected Family Contribution (EFC) no longer reflects my family’s true income due to the pandemic, can I receive a reevaluation of my financial aid?
  • Students who have already submitted their SIR have the option to submit an EFC appeal when the appeal becomes available on July 1, 2021. If an entering student’s FAFSA does not accurately reflect their income for this current year, they may complete a Preliminary Family Contribution Appeal. There is no official form at this time, but students will need to submit a detailed letter explaining the loss of income from January to December of this year in comparison to 2019 and attach any supporting documents. For the type of documents, students can submit for reevaluation, visit Family Contributions Review for Parental and/or Student Contribution
  •  I am a new incoming student. How I can be eligible for the Blue and Gold Opportunity Program? 
  • Students with a total household income of $80,000 or less are eligible for the Blue and Gold Opportunity Program. Eligible students will be offered gift aid in the amount of systemwide - or base - tuition and fees for the amount of $12,570. The types of aid include, but are not limited to, scholarships offered through the school or an outside agency, Cal Grant, University Grant, and Pell Grant, the total of which will not exceed eligibility.
  • How can I be considered part-time for spring? How will 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.
  • What actions do I need to take if I have Verification requirements on MyAwards? How will this affect my financial aid? 
  • Having Verification/SAR requirements posted to a student’s MyAwards indicates the need to review the student’s FAFSA or California Dream Act information and confirm it accurately reflects the household income for the prior-prior year.  

    To complete verification:  
    1. Log in to the MyAwards portal and  
    2. Under the “Requirements” tab, locate the “Verification Requirements/ SAR C” requirement.  
    3. Click on the link provided to be routed to ucdavis.verifymyfafsa.com   
    4. Create an account.  
    5. Once the account is created, students will see all the documents required to upload and submit. 

    We complete verification throughout the summer and expect to complete verifications for all selected students by the end of summer. We thank you for your patience.
