With the passage of Proposition 30, annual tuition fees for students will now revert back to the same rate as it was in the 2011-2012 academic year. Students may either be credited, refunded or receive a reconfigured financial aid package to account for the revised tuition fee rates. Your student account will reflect required adjustments by December 14, 2012. However, generally speaking:
- Students whose financial aid award only contains a Pell Grant, federal direct Stafford loan, federal direct PLUS loan, Federal Work Study and/or scholarships may receive a partial fee refund. Please refer to example two or four in the Proposition 30 example spreadsheet. These examples are generic and may not reflect your exact award, cost of attendance or enrollment.
- Students with Cal Grant A or B and/or a State University Grant will not receive a refund of fees. Because fees were paid by one of these funding sources, students will see a reduction in the amount of their fee-paying grant award and are not entitled to a refund. Please refer to example one or three in the Proposition 30 example spreadsheet. These examples are generic and may not reflect your exact award, cost of attendance or enrollment.
- Cost of attendance will be revised for all financial aid students based on the reduction in fees. In some cases, certain awards, such as loans, may be reduced to stay within the revised cost of attendance. Also, a select number of students may owe funds back to the university if the total amount of the original financial aid awarded exceeds the revised cost of attendance. Please see example six in the Proposition 30 example spreadsheet. These examples are generic and may not reflect your exact award, cost of attendance or enrollment.
