General Information

For students who have not yet filed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application, learn more about filing an application and be sure to include the UC Davis school code 001313. The financial aid process differs depending on which program you are participating in.

Can students take their financial aid to the Washington Program?

All forms of financial aid (UC, state, and federal) are available to students participating in the Washington Program, the Financial Aid Office will adjust a portion of the student’s financial aid package according to the cost of living in DC. Make sure you talk to someone in the Financial Aid Office! For information about program cost go here.

Quarter Program

The Washington Program office sends a list of participants to the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office, where financial aid packages are compiled. Their office will adjust aid awards to meet the increased cost of the program. 

Summer Program

The Summer Program is slightly different from the Quarter Program. To qualify for financial aid, students must have a current year FAFSA or a Dream Act Application on file. For general information about financial aid during the summer, please refer to the Summer Financial Aid website.

The UC Davis Financial Aid and Scholarships Office will package your aid and notify you via email when it is ready. Aid notification typically occurs four after the start of the program. Once notified, you can view and accept your aid on the UC Davis MyAwards website. Students participating in the Summer UCDC program who are eligible for financial aid must enroll in at least 6 units of coursework in order to qualify for aid. Financial aid will be disbursed by the UC Davis Student Accounting office.
