* Students receiving need-based financial aid are required to report all scholarships and fellowships they receive to the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office. Federal regulations require these awards be used in determining eligibility for federally funded financial assistance. UCSC’s policy is to reduce or eliminate the loan and work study portion of the financial aid package before reducing any part of a student’s need-based grants. If the scholarship exceeds the amount of loan and work study funds awarded, then other types of grant aid may be reduced by the remaining balance, ensuring that exactly 100% need of is met.
