New Students: Welcome to UC Berkeley!
Congratulations on being admitted to the world's premier public university! The Financial Aid and Scholarships Office looks forward to helping you meet the cost of your education. You can view your financial aid awards and any messages we may have for you on MyFinAid, UC Berkeley's online financial aid system. Every student receiving financial aid at UC Berkeley has a MyFinAid account. You will need your CalNet ID to access MyFinAid. You will find a link to create your CalNet ID in the Next Steps section of your myBerkeleyApplication home page.
Throughout the year, MyFinAid is where you will find updates to your financial aid award summary, as well as messages from us about payment status, any changes in your eligibility, and any financial aid requirements, such as forms we may need you to submit. MyFinAid is your primary source of information about updates to your financial aid package. We recommend that you check MyFinAid regularly.
Another helpful resource to check regularly is the Financial Aid and Scholarships website. Our website contains information that all financial aid recipients need to know and is updated regularly. You might be interested in our dedicated web page with financial aid information for new undergraduate students or our web pages with information for out-of-state students and parents about Nonresident Supplemental Tuition and Fees. You also might find our New Student Frequently Asked Questions flyer or our Transfer Student Frequently Asked Questions flyer helpful.
Again, welcome to UC Berkeley! We wish you an excellent academic career!
