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.

Financial Aid Applications

The priority filing date for both the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and California Dream Act Application (CADAA) for the 2024-25 academic year was extended to May 2, 2024, for both the FAFSA and CADAA.

CADAA filers will not see changes to the application process, but FAFSA filers will experience the changes resulting from the FAFSA Simplification Act which provides an easier, more streamlined application process for applying for federal financial aid.

Select the appropriate application and aid year to begin.

The 2023-24 FAFSA is for students readmitted/admitted on appeal for winter 2024, spring 2024, and students planning on attending summer 2024.
