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.

  • What if I cannot pay my current remaining balance for the Fall quarter?
  • If a student cannot pay their fees by the fall term payment deadline of 9/15/22, Student Accounting offers a Deferred Payment Plan. This payment plan allows for eligible tuition and fees to be paid in monthly installments. Another consideration is to take out loans if they have not already done so, to cover any remaining balance due.
  • My Parent PLUS Loan requirements have not been satisfied and it has been over 7-10 business days. What should I do?  
  • Please submit your Application, Master Promissory Note (MPN), and the credit check approval letter as a PDF through Contact An Expert, so we can verify the requirements are complete. Processing time once all required documents are submitted will take 5-7 business days.
  • I am packaged as a full-time student. However, I am thinking about going part-time. How do I notify the Financial Aid office?

  • You will have to petition for part-time status with the Registrar's Office. You can contact them at 530-752-3639 or through Contact An Expert. If your part-time status petition for next quarter is approved, you would then submit an Enrollment Status Change Form which you can access through the requirements page on your MyAwards. If you are confirmed as a part-time student the Registrar's office will reduce your tuition accordingly. When you submit the Change-in-Aid form your financial aid package will be adjusted to reflect the decrease in tuition. Keep in mind if you are receiving Cal Grant or Pell Grant, they are both unit-sensitive aid which means that if you are enrolled in less than 12 units only a percentage of these grants will be disbursed based on actual enrolled units. Learn more at Changes That May Affect Your Aid
  • I requested an alternative loan two weeks ago and I do not see it in my account, when will the alternative loan be processed?
  • Alternative education loans (also known as private loans) are an option for financing your education. After confirming eligibility, financial aid staff will receive a certification request. Certifications will be reviewed for the 2022-23 academic year starting July 15, 2022. For further information about certification evaluation please visit School Certification Process. Please allow up to 2-3 business weeks for us to complete the certification process.
  • My parents credit was not approved for my parent plus loan, can I, the student, be the endorser?  

  • No. If the borrower is a parent, the endorser may not be the student on whose behalf of the parent is borrowing. An endorser is someone who agrees to repay a Direct PLUS Loan if the borrower doesn’t repay the loan, much like a cosigner does for other types of loans.

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.
