UC's Financial Aid Update

We understand that students and their families may be financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic now or in the coming months. Students and families who believe that their situation requires a re-evaluation of their financial aid should be advised to:

  1. Utilize the campus financial aid calculators to determine if the change in their finances would affect the amount of financial aid they are eligible to receive.
  2. If the calculator shows a change in financial aid eligibility they should contact the campus(es) that they have been admitted to for available appeal processes.
  3. Contact information, including the best way to reach the financial aid office during remote operations, is available through the student's portal or on the financial aid website. Follow-up to students will be handled by email responses, or telephone calls or virtual meetings as needed.

Such evaluations of financial aid are likely to occur later this summer, are considered on a case by case basis, and that process requirements can vary from campus to campus.

If you plan to attend a CSU, private, out of state etc. and are financially impacted byt the COVID19 pandemic please reach out to that school's Financial Aid office to inquire about next steps.
