Important Updates

  • The priority filing date for the 2024-25 FAFSA and CADAA has been extended to May 2, 2024. Visit Apply for Financial Aid for details.
  • 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.

UC Davis Aggie Grant Plan

What is the Aggie Grant Plan?

Eligible students with family incomes between $80,000 and $150,000 and parent assets below $200,000 (excluding personal residence) will have up to 35% of their system-wide – or base – tuition and fees covered by gift aid. Grant amounts are based on the Tuition Stability Plan implemented in 2021-22:

  • Base tuition and fees for 2021-22 are $12,570; the Aggie Grant Plan covers up to $4,400
  • Base tuition and fees for 2022-23 are $13,104; the Aggie Grant Plan covers up to $4,586
  • Base tuition and fees for 2023-24 are $13,752; the Aggie Grant Plan covers up to $4,813
  • Base tuition and fees for 2024-25 are $14,436; the Aggie Grant Plan covers up to $5,053

However, it is important to note that no student will receive more grant support than their calculated financial need. Base tuition and fees are subject to change; any revisions to the tuition and/or fee amounts will affect the Aggie Grant amount as well. If you qualify, you will be offered a University Middle Income Grant to cover the designated amount as part of your financial aid package.
