Financial Aid

Graduate student status, for federal financial aid purposes, is now determined by the completion of 3 years of undergraduate credit in addition to being admitted into a graduate degree program (PharmD). Students with less than 72 semester (108 quarter hours) at or transferred into UC will initially be classified as undergraduate students for aid and should not indicate that they are graduate students when completing the FAFSA. If not otherwise independent (24 at of the beginning of the aid filing year, married, have dependents, orphan, or veteran), these students must list parent information on the FAFSA.

Undergraduate aid can include grants as well as loans. Federal Stafford Loan eligibility is limited to $2,500 per term for dependent students and $4,166 for independent students. Upon reaching the 108 hour mark (generally after fall term of the first professional year), the student can request that their aid be reprocessed as a graduate student for the remainder of the academic year.

Graduate students in the PharmD program have up to $33,000 in Federal Stafford Loan eligibility annually (up to the cost of education minus other aid sources). Graduate students, however, are no longer eligible for federal grant consideration. For more information regarding financial aid, please visit PharmD financial aid.
