Live: How to Manage Your Finances

Paying for School

Cashier’s Office

Pay your student bills here via cash, check, money order, cashier's check or Discover card. You can also cash a check here (up to a $100 for a 50 cent fee) and exchange currency and coin.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available to help students find the funding they need to get a college education. This may come in the form of grants, loans, scholarships and work-study. If you are an admitted and continuing student, you can get personalized financial aid information through the electronic Financial Aid Notice, also known as MyAwards.


Student Accounting assists students in meeting their needs by providing the most effective and efficient disbursement of student financial aid.

Registration Fee Deferred Payment Plan

The Registration Fee Deferred Payment Plan (RFDPP) allows quarter students to pay their fees in three installments over three months.


Undergraduate scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis for academic achievement and, in some cases, financial need. You'll need to complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by the deadline so you can be considered for need-based scholarships. The majority of UC Davis’ scholarships are not renewable; so you'll need to reapply to be considered for scholarships on an annual basis.

Personal Finances

Find an ATM

Cash Course contains comprehensive, non-commercial information to help with budgeting and financial planning, dealing with debit and credit cards, preventing identity theft and much more.
