Our Best Answer - How do I check the status of my financial aid application?

How to Check the Status of Your Financial Aid Application

If you have already filed your FAFSA or CA Dream Application, you can check on your status by logging in and clicking the link for your Student Aid Report. Your Student Aid Report summarizes the information you filed on your application, and gives you preliminary information on any issues you may need to follow up on with our office.

Similarly, if you filed a CA Dream Application, you can check the status of your application by logging in to your application and clicking on the CAL SAR tab.

Once UCSB has received your application, you can check on the status of your financial aid award by logging in to My Aid Status.

On My Aid Status you can: View your financial aid application status, check for any required documents, view your financial aid award letter, request student loans, view your disbursements and summer enrollment data.
