Important Note: In order for financial aid to be available in your first semester, you must complete your financial aid application 3 to 4 months before the semester begins. Applicants can try to get a financial aid application on file while applying for admission to the program.
The Financial Aid Office will not make any financial awards or disbursements until an applicant has been admitted to the iSchool and enrolled for classes. The amount awarded depends on the number of units a student takes each semester. Students need to enroll in at least 4 units (200 level courses) each semester in order to maintain eligibility for financial aid.
