Dear Student,

This is a screen shot of the first web page that gives newly admitted UC Davis students information about their financial aid awards. As you can see, there are many links the student can explore to learn more about the details of their award. But many educational and consumer experts think students should not have to wade through lots of webpges to get the information they need to make wise decisions. They say colleges can and should provide one complete, jargon-free and easy-to-compare page. To read about why you deserve better, how we evaluated these letters, and how you can evaluate your own letters, click here. Of course, we hope anyone making important life decisions will check with their own trusted financial and personal advisors, not just websites - not even this one!
