Lack of funds need not be a barrier to attend UCI; over 60% of UCI's enrolled students receive some form of financial aid. Students who demonstrate that they need financial assistance in order to attend may be eligible for scholarships, grants, loans, and/or work-study awards through the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships. In addition to awarding aid on the basis of financial need, some scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence.
Financial aid is available though the UC Irvine campus. General information regarding the campus application process, deadlines, and financial aid programs for undergraduate students may be found in the 2004-05 Financial Aid Handbook.
For additional scholarship opportunities, we encourage you to visit the UC Irvine Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships.
