NEED-BASED STIPEND Regents Scholars who apply for financial aid by March 2 and have financial need will have their basic CA resident need met through the Regents Stipend (which includes the Regents honorarium amount). Non-resident supplemental tuition is not covered by the Regents Stipend. The Regents Stipend will be reduced by any scholarships or benefits awarded by other agencies. To be considered for financial aid and the Regents Stipend, students should file one of the following (do not file both) by the March 2 deadline: Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA); or California Dream Application Report to the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office all outside financial assistance, scholarships and benefits received from all sources throughout the four-year appointment period.

RENEWAL OF SCHOLARSHIP Regents Scholars are expect to enroll in a minimum of 12 units per quarter and to make normal progress toward a baccalaureate degree. A minimum 3.0 cumulative UC grade point average is required for renewal.
TIME TO GRADUATION You will likely need to complete more than 36 units each year to graduate within four years of entering UC San Diego. We recommend meeting with your academic adviser to develop your plan for graduation.
NON-ENROLLMENT DURING SCHOLARSHIP TENURE Regents Scholars who withdraw or will not attend a term should notify the Scholarship Coordinator to request their Regents Scholarship be reinstated upon return to the university.
