Types of Financial Aid

The type of funding a student is eligible for is determined by information from a student's FAFSA or California Dream Act Application. Depending on your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), our office may offer you a variety of assistance that may be comprised of more than one award type. Factors that may affect your eligibility for financial aid include income level, enrollment status, or grade point average.

Admitted or continuing students must log in to MyAwards to view their aid package and requirements. Types of aid that might be included in your aid package may include Grants, Loans, Scholarships, Work-Study, Tuition Assistance Programs (below), Special Program funds (below), or Defined Assistance Programs (below).

Tuition Assistance Programs

There are three programs that are aligned to family income and help students pay for tuition and fees at UC Davis.
