Important Updates

  • In observance of Juneteenth, Financial Aid and Scholarships will be closed on Wednesday, June 19, 2024
  • The Department of Education has announced they will send information from the 2024-25 FAFSA to schools in mid-March. This may result in a delay in financial aid packaging and offers for the 2024-25 academic year. While awaiting your financial aid offer, we encourage you to utilize the UC Davis Financial Aid Estimator to estimate your potential aid.

Graduate Studies

The application process starts by filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application. The priority filing date for these financial aid applications is March 2nd of each year.

Once a FAFSA or Dream Act Application is filed, the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office strongly recommends all students receiving external sources of funding report these additional resources through MyAwards as adjustments to your financial aid may be necessary. 

Please review the links on the left for additional information. For questions, please contact the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office.
