Advancing Your Career and Knowledge at UCI


Professional students come to UCI with a different set of expectations and financial aid options. Whether you’re pursuing graduate school, medicine, business, or law, we have all your financial aid resources in one place.

How to Apply


Whether you’re a new or continuing graduate student, you’ll need to file a FAFSA or CADAA application to determine your eligibility for financial assistance. It’s online, it’s free, and it’s easy to complete.

Types of Aid


We encourage you to explore the resources available through the Graduate Division, which offers comprehensive information about funding opportunities and resources, including assistantships and fellowships.

School of Medicine Students


UCI provides a wealth of resources to help with the costs of medical school.

In addition to the standard FAFSA application, all medical students must submit the School of Medicine Institutional Application which enters you into consideration for both need-based and merit-based scholarships. 

When it comes to loans, your options differ substantially when compared to what’s available for undergraduate students. You can choose between the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan and the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan, in addition to private loans. 

Whatever financial assistance you choose, make sure you check your MyAid to verify the status of your application, and keep an eye on your inbox for any emails we send to ensure you meet all deadlines.
