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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
