Student Loans and Grants
Federal Direct Loans and University of California Grants are available to U.S. citizens and permanent residents. To apply, file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov by June 30, 2016. Submit your FAFSA before you are admitted to UC Davis.
International students receive full consideration for Graduate School of Management scholarships, fellowships and assistantships. Those who need educational loan assistance must have a U.S. co-signer.
In some cases, U.S. citizens and permanent residents qualify for California residency by their second year of graduate school. We encourage you to pursue this and possibly reduce your student fees.
