Selected for Verification?

Have you received notification from our office that your financial aid file has been selected for verification?

If so, make sure you submit the requested documents by the deadline indicated. Failing to submit your documents on time could jeopardize your financial aid award.

If you are an entering student and your financial aid award is no longer available on My Aid you should check My Aid Status for documents that are needed.

UC's Blue and Gold Opportunity Plan will cover systemwide fees for most California residents whose families qualify for financial aid and earn less than $80,000 for 2014/15. More information is available at
