Using Your Work-Study Award

Financial Aid at UC San Diego

As of September 2016, the FASFA opens on October 1 and students must use their tax information from two years prior (for example, for the 2017-2018 FASFA students should use their 2015 tax return). The priority deadline for funding for UCSD has not changed and is still March 2.

What is work-study?

Work-study is awarded by the Financial Aid Office as part of your financial aid package. It allows you to earn money for your educational expenses. It is paid through the bi-weekly payroll process, and does not credit your student account. To determine if you have an award, review your Award Notification on TritonLink.
