Financial Aid Process




It all starts with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) - School Code 004508.


Not all forms are required by all applicants. Check your To Do List in UCDAccess to know what forms we need from you. Below are some frequently used forms.


  • Watch your Webmail account for award notification.
  • Log in to UCDAccess and click Accept/Decline Awards in the Financial Aid section of your Student Center.


Aid packages are disbursed no sooner than the week prior to the beginning of each semester.
