The University disburses all loans under the Federal Direct Loan Programs to you in three installments, one per academic quarter. Disbursements are activated after you have paid your course fees and enrolled in courses.
Direct loans are made by the U.S. government and administered by the U.S. Department of Education. Using the income and asset information provided on the FAFSA, the Financial Aid Office will determine your eligibility and notify you of the types and amounts of Direct Loan for which you qualify.
Alternative Financing Options
Employee Reimbursement Plans may be offered through your current employer to reimburse you for fees and other program costs. Check with your human resources or benefits office to see what reimbursement plans may be available to you. Make sure you are aware of any program restrictions or special requirements.
Private Sector Educational Loan Programs provide both fixed-amount loan programs and revolving lines of credit. Unlike the federal loans, these programs are based on creditworthiness. Interest rates are usually higher, and interest will begin to accrue immediately, although you often have the option of deferring payment while you are in school.
Terms and conditions for these programs are not set by the federal government and are subject to change. For more information, please contact the UC Davis Graduate Financial Aid Office at (530) 752-7423.
If you have any other questions about filing the FAFSA or the awarding process, please contact the UC Davis Graduate Financial Aid Office at (530) 752-7423.
