Accept Your Financial Aid

Your final step.

You're almost there! Once you have applied for financial aid, all future communication about your application will come to you via your university Webmail account. You can also check out detailed info about your application in UCDAccess:

  • The To Do List will list any actions you need to take to complete your application. Only completed applications are reviewed for financial aid awarding.
  • The View Your Financial Aid link allows you to view your financial aid awards when they become available (we'll send you an email to notify you).
  • The Accept/Decline Awards link lets you view and accept, reduce or decline the awards you have been offered. When accepting your award for the aid year, the amount that you accept will be split in half to cover the Fall and the Spring semesters. If you don't know what you'll need for the Spring semester, double the Fall amount. The Spring amount can be adjusted as late as early January so that you receive only what you need.
  • Financial aid is disbursed (paid) into your university account no sooner than the week prior to the beginning of each semester, with excess funds being refunded to you the first week of the semester.

Your financial aid package is subject to change at any time, even after disbursement. Be sure to understand your cost of attendance and reasons why your award may be adjusted or reduced.
