Financial Aid

Payment deadlines, financial aid refunds

Prior to each academic term, students receive an electronic bill from the STUDENT ACCOUNTING office. This e-bill will list all term-based charges, and any authorized financial aid will appear as a credit. When the student has satisfied all requirements for the disbursement of financial aid, financial aid will be applied to the student's account.

If funds from financial aid exceed the total charges, Student Accounting will generate a "refund." Refunds are generally available within 3-5 days of the tuition/fee payment deadline. Direct deposit is recommended (enroll online here). (Be sure to confirm the actual deposit date with your banking institution.) In the event a paper check is issued, it will be held in Davis at Student Accounting for 10 days, and then mailed to the address on the student's campus SISWeb account.

If financial aid funds are less than the total charges, the student will need to pay the remaining amount by the tuition/fee payment deadline.  See PAYMENT METHODS.

NOTE: The tuition, fees, and charges posted on your e-bill are estimates based on currently approved amounts.  These figures may not be final. Actual tuition, fees, and charges are subject to change by the Regents of the University of California and could be affected by State funding reductions. Accordingly, final approved levels (and thus a student's final balance due) may differ from the amounts shown.
