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.
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).

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.).
