General information

Complete FAFSA

DEADLINE: March 2nd

Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) allows the university to determine what types of financial aid and/or grants you qualify for. You can file your FAFSA online at

  • The UC Davis school code is 001313
  • As a graduate student, be sure to file your FAFSA as an “independent” so your own, and not your parents’, income is considered for financial aid purposes
  • Under the “Degree or certificate” section you need to select Grad/Professional (not Teaching Credential)

After filing your FAFSA you will receive a SAR (Student Aid Report) summarizing the information you reported on your application. You should receive an email within a few days if you filed online and provided an email address.

To sign in to view your FAFSA you will need a pin. To apply for a pin or request a duplicate go to:

Please note: March 2nd is the recommended deadline but you can submit your FAFSA after this date.
