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.

  • If I keep my student health insurance this fall, when will I see an update on MyAwards to know if I have received allocated funds for helping to offset the cost of the insurance?
  • All registered UC Davis students are automatically enrolled in the UC Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) in order to meet the UC Regents mandate that all UC students have health insurance coverage as a non-academic condition of enrollment. Once the Student Health and Counseling Services finalizes enrollment and waivers, the fee for SHIP will be deducted from students’ accounts sometime in the fall quarter. If you do not waive out of SHIP, your financial aid package will be readjusted in mid to late-October to help cover the cost of SHIP with financial aid, if eligible.
  • How do I know if I qualify for Work-Study? How do I apply to a Work-Study job if I am eligible?
  • Students with Expected Family Contributions (EFC) of less than or equal to $20,000, and with eligibility greater than or equal to $1,000, will be identified on their award notices as Work-Study eligible. Eligible students can obtain a Work-Study Eligibility Certificate (with a 30-day expiration date) through MyAwards. Work-Study Eligibility Certificates will become available mid-June of each academic year. Work-Study funds will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • When do I need to complete Academic Participation? 
  • Students can confirm Academic Participation beginning on the first day of instruction and must be verified within the first two (2) weeks of each term. Important Dates for the current academic year lists deadlines for each term. If students register for new classes, including waitlisted classes, within the first three (3) weeks of the term they must verify participation in the new courses. Failure to complete Academic Participation can result in a reduction or cancellation of financial aid.

  • Can I apply for a computer loan? If so, where can I apply?
  • Undergraduate and graduate FAFSA filers and undergraduate California Dream Act filers are eligible to request a computer purchase loan for up to $2,500. This loan can be requested once during a student's academic pursuit at UC Davis. The loan request can be submitted as a Cost of Attendance Appeal. Submit a copy of the estimate/invoice from the vendor for the computer with the appeal. Based on the estimate, Financial Aid and Scholarships will increase your budget by up to $2,500 and award a loan to purchase the computer.

  • When will I be able to know if I received the Middle-Class Scholarship for the year 2020-21 school year? 
  • To be considered for the Middle-Class Scholarship, students must have submitted the 2020-21 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the March 2, 2020, deadline. Parents and students with a total household income and assets of up to $171,000 may be eligible for this scholarship. For any questions about eligibility, we recommend contacting the California Student Aid Commission at 888-224-7268. Students eligible for the Middle-Class Scholarship will be included on the list given to our office from the California Student Aid Commission sometime in mid-November 2020.
