About Financial Aid and Scholarships

The UCSC Financial Aid and Scholarship Office is committed to helping make it possible for admitted students to attend UCSC regardless of economic circumstances.

Each year we assist more than 12,000 students or about 7 out of every 10 undergraduates with scholarships, grants, loans, and/or part-time employment opportunities. We also assist graduate students with federal student loans. These resources, totaling over $260 million, help make UCSC's extraordinary learning facilities affordable to all California students.

To recognize outstanding undergraduate students, our campus awards about $3,000,000 in scholarships to about 1,500 students per year.

If you have questions not answered on the web site please contact us. Our staff is constantly in training to provide excellent service. You can expect courteous and knowledgeable attention appropriate to your circumstances whether you contact us by phone or in person. We welcome your comments and suggestions on how we can improve our services.
