To ensure timely receipt of your aid, students must satisfy certain disbursement requirements. Students must complete these requirements by a certain deadline depending on their program and year.

Requirements for Disbursement

How Funds Are Disbursed

NOTE: Direct deposit of financial aid to your bank account is available for all financial aid, including Direct (Stafford) and Graduate Plus Loans! We recommend choosing the bank account EFT option to receive funds. Choosing the debit card option will involve incurring additional costs if you intend to use the card to pay your UCSF tuition/fee balance.
