Financial Aid

The UCSC Financial Aid and Scholarship Office is committed to helping admitted students attend and graduate from UCSC regardless of any economic circumstances.

Financial aid helps students and their families pay for college by covering higher education expenses, such as tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and transportation. There are several types of financial aid; these include grants, scholarships, work-study and federal or private loans. Students must meet eligibility requirements to apply and receive financial aid.
