Types of Financial Aid

The Financial Aid and Scholarships Office offers loans to UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education students in Forensic Science and Maternal and Child Nutrition programs. Need is determined through filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act Application. We strongly recommend researching all possible funding options in order to minimize loans by applying for Scholarships.

Admitted and continuing students in UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education may log in to MyAwards to review the types of aid that may be included in their financial aid package. We anticipate MyAwards will be released in August for the upcoming academic year. 


Loans are financial aid awards that require repayment, with interest, under varying terms and conditions. Students may receive a maximum $20,500 in Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan. Students may also borrow up to the cost of attendance minus other estimated financial aid in Graduate PLUS Loan. Students may also seek other alternative options such as Alternative Loans.
