The San Francisco campus administers several financial aid programs offering loans, scholarships, grants, and work-study.
Funds are limited and are awarded only to students who demonstrate need.
Eligibility for need-based financial aid programs available through the University of California is based upon the principle that financial responsibility for attaining educational goals rests with the student and his or her family. Therefore, all student resources and assets will be considered sources of income in meeting educational costs.
Because of the high cost of a health professional education, UCSF generally requires parental financial information. The parents’ financial situation does not affect eligibility for financial aid but helps determine the type and amount of aid offered.
Entering students should apply as soon as they have been accepted (or provisionally accepted) for admission.
By completing the UCSF financial aid application packet, students are automatically considered for all the programs administered by UCSF Student Financial Aid.
