UCR  

How Much Does UCR Cost?

Over 85% of UCR undergraduate students receive financial aid. 70% of those that receive it have their full fees covered by grants and/or scholarships. UCR students who borrow federal loans graduate with an average student loan debt of $21,500 – just 1/5 of the actual total cost of tuition and housing. 

See how much UCR costs and then use the UCR Net Price Calculator to get a more accurate estimate of your cost plus the financial aid you could receive at UCR. 

Financial Aid on Hold?

If you see that your financial aid on Growl Current Activity is “Aid on Hold,”  select the “Holds” item on the menu bar for a description of the hold and how to resolve it (e.g., loan documents to be completed).

Loan Exiting Steps for Seniors

Blue and Gold Opportunity Plan

The Blue and Gold Opportunity Plan is a UC financial aid program for lower-income students.  It guarantees you will not have to pay UC’s system-wide tuition and fees out of your own pocket if you are a CA resident whose total family income is less than $80,000 a year (and you qualify for financial aid).

You don't need to fill out a separate application to qualify for the Blue and Gold Opportunity Plan. You will receive the benefits automatically if you meet the following eligibility requirements:

  •  Submit a FAFSA or California Dream Act Application and Cal Grant GPA Verification Form by March 2
  • Be a California resident or have AB 540 status
  • Demonstrate total family income below $80,000 and financial need, as determined for federal need-based aid programs
  • Be in your first four years as a UC undergraduate (first two for transfer students)
  • Meet other basic requirements for UC grant aid (for example, be enrolled at least half-time during the academic year, meet campus academic progress standards, not be in default on student loans, etc.)

What's covered?

If you're eligible, your system-wide tuition and fees will be fully covered by scholarship or grant money. The plan combines all sources of scholarship and grant awards you receive (federal, state, UC and private) to go toward covering your tuition and fees. Students with greater financial need can qualify for even more grant support to help defray other educational expenses (like books, housing, transportation, etc.).
