NEWS, EVENTS & WORKSHOPS
* Holiday Office Closure: The financial aid office will be closed during the Winter holidays on the following dates: Dec 25-26, Dec 31, and Jan 1, 2015.
* FSA ID to Replace Federal Student Aid PIN: Federal Student Aid has announced the implementation of a new login process for student- and borrow-based Web sites, including FAFSA on the Web, NSLDS, and StudentLoans.gov. The new FSA ID, which will be comprised of a user-selected username and password, will replace the FSA PIN as the process by which students, parents, and borrowers authenticate their identity to access their federal student aid information. This change is being made to eliminate the need for individuals to enter personal identifiers (Social Security number, name, date of birth) when accessing Federal Student Aid's systems. This change is critical to comply with new security requirements and industry-best practices. Existing users will be able to link their PIN information to the FSA ID.
* 2015-2016 North Valley Health Education Foundation Scholarship applications are now being accepted. Up to five ~$2,500 scholarships will be awarded to UC Davis medical students.
