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

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 award amount as well. If you qualify, you will be awarded a University Middle Income Grant to cover the designated amount as part of your financial aid package.
