Receiving External Scholarships

Reporting External Scholarships
All external scholarship received by students need to be reported to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships. Log in to your "My Aid" account and submit the scholarship information under "Report My Changes." We will revise your financial aid offer to include the external scholarship(s). When revising your financial aid we will reduce loans and work-study first.

Receiving External Scholarships
The agency granting you the scholarship should make the scholarship check payable to "UC Regents" and mail it to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, 102 Aldrich Hall, Irvine, CA 92697. The agency should note your name and student ID number or date of birth on the check so that we can apply it to your account. Should the agency have specific conditions for disbursement, they should include those directions in a letter accompanying the check. Your external scholarship will be applied to your zot account when it's received.
