7. Will my financial aid transfer?
    • Students who have gone through the program in the past have found that the financial aid they received while attending the UC Center Sacramento was comparable to what they received at their home campus.
    • Here are financial aid basics:


    1. UC Davis is responsible for the awarding of aid to the UCCS policy program participants
    2. Students should contact the Federal Processor and add UC Davis school code to the list of FAFSA recipients.  The code is 001313.
    3. Students must inform their home campus Financial Aid office that they will be enrolling at UC Davis for whichever term they choose to participate. This way they do not receive financial aid at both institutions. Campus representatives can be contacted for information on financial aid contacts at home institutions.


      • The Journalism Program is offered in the summer only. Your home campus will be responsible for awarding financial aid. Contact your campus representative to get in touch with the financial aid representative at your school.
