Graduate Students: Financial Support

Starting this spring, all financial assistance information (such as fellowships, fee remissions, scholarships, and financial aid awards) and loan management functions for Aid Year 2016-17 and beyond will move to the “My Finances” section of CalCentral, the portal for your academic experience on campus.

Eligible continuing students will be able to see their 2016-17 “Aid Package” in late May or early June.

Students will continue to use CARS or MyFinAid to access summer 2016 (Aid Year 2015-16) information.

    • If you have questions, please see your departmental advisor.

    • To view and take action on any spring 2016 and summer 2016 (Aid Year 2015-16) items, you will continue to use MyFinAid.

  • Under the “Messages” section of “Communications” within My Finances, you will view information, such as important deadlines, disbursement notices, and scholarship opportunities.
