UC Hastings utilizes information from the Need Access Form and the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to package financial aid awards for incoming students. All applicants wishing to be considered for institutional grants and scholarships should file the Need Access Form as soon as possible in the application process. The Admissions and Financial Aid Offices strive to email financial aid packages to admitted applicants as quickly as possible after they have been admitted, but information from the Need Access Form must be received before an award can be made.
Students who are admitted to UC Hastings should file the FAFSA as soon as possible after they have received their acceptance letter. Information from the FAFSA is used to determine students' eligibility for federal loans, which can cover up to the full cost of attendance, including living expenses.
