But we know that every family – especially during these challenging times – has concerns about cost. 


Even if your financial picture has changed, know that our commitment to your college dream has not. All UC students – 100% – receive some sort of financial support. 

There are several types of financial aid, including federal grants, UC scholarships, and loans. We believe a combination of UC, federal, state, and outside aid can make your UC education affordable.
