Keep an updated copy of the academic calendar, and highlight the dates and deadlines. It is imperative that you meet all deadlines for registration, dropping or adding a class, applying for financial aid, etc.
All students requesting financial aid must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each academic year. Additional requirements for completing financial aid applications depend on which type of aid applicant you are.
University College offers a number of scholarships and grants for need-based and merit-based students, and student veterans.
Any financial aid indicated as a Payment Award during registration is based on the student having completed all Financial Aid to Do List(s). It is in no way an indication that aid will be awarded. It is simply a courtesy to allow the student to complete the registration process while awaiting a financial aid award. The amount of any actual financial aid awarded may be less than indicated, or in some cases no aid will be awarded.
Students must stay registered for 6 credit hours for the semester in order to be eligible and retain any financial aid awarded as federal loans. Any tuition expenses (including fees) not covered by financial aid are the responsibility of the student, and will be billed on the next billing date of that semester. Courses may not be dropped after the financial drop deadline due to non-receipt of this benefit or changes in coverage after the term begins. It is the student’s responsibility to work with the UC Financial Aid office regarding eligibility and award.
For information or assistance about this option, reference Undergraduate Financial Aid or Graduate Financial Aid pages to review your available options, or contact the University College Financial Aid Office regarding any further questions.
