    Questions or comments.

  • Using Financial Aid to Pay for Your Program
  • Review information about Financial Aid, Scholarships and Budgeting for Study Abroad in our Resources section.

    Typically the financial aid that you receive on campus can be applied to study abroad, and your aid may be adjusted to account for added program costs, such as airfare and local housing costs. Even if you do not normally qualify for financial aid while on campus, you might qualify for aid for study abroad, depending on additional costs and your particular situation. Always consult with the Financial Aid Office before enrolling in a program.

    General Points on Using Financial Aid to Pay for Your Program

    Timelines for programs are such that your adjusted financial aid package may not be finalized until late in the process (when you are already liable for program fees), so it is important to stay on top of things.

      - Inform yourself beforehand of all of the steps involved.
      - Submit materials, including the FAFSA or CA Dream Act Application, on time and fully completed.
      - Master the options and limits of aid in your particular case.
      - Contact the Financial Aid Office with questions.
      - Follow up to ensure your aid is disbursed.
      - If you need a Visa Support Letter from the Financial Aid Office, please use the request tool on their website.
    Specific Points on Financial Aid for Quarter Abroad Programs:
    The Financial Aid and Scholarships Office will utilize cost information provided by the Global Learning Hub to adjust your overall Cost of Attendance on MyAwards. you can then utilize financial aid, scholarships and/or loans to help cover your abroad expenses. If you receive University grants - UC Grant, UC Blue & Gold and /or UC Aggie Grant Plan - these funds are awarded based on the cost of attendance at UC Davis, and do not increase even though Quarter Abroad programs have costs higher than UC Davis' standard cost.
    Direct Deposit for Financial Aid Disbursement: 
    If you are traveling before your program's start date, any financial aid funds remaining after payment of fees on your account may be issued after you depart; therefore, it is important that you sign up for Direct Deposit of aid disbursements. Be sure to include your UC Davis email address so that you will receive notifications of your deposit. if you have questions regarding this service, contact myaccount@ucdavis.edu.
