|IMPORTANT: UCI has a new loan servicer, starting with Fall 2017 quarter. You will be notified when and how to login at the servicer’s web site to complete loan processing online. If you follow the servicer’s instructions, there will be plenty of time for loans to post to your Zot Account before the September 15, 2017 registration fee payment deadline.|
Campus Based Student Loans are awarded by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships. There are different loan programs available. Your eligibility is determined through your Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). See Loan Programs.
If you are awarded a Campus Based Student Loan, you must accept your award on My Aid. (You may also access My Aid through the ZOT Portal.) Contact the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships if you have any questions about the information presented in My Aid.
Effective for the Fall 2017 quarter, loan processing is changing at UCI. You will complete more steps online, including signing your promissory note electronically. As a result, Financial Services is not accepting printed loan documents at this time.
You will be contacted by UCI’s new loan servicer with instructions for logging in at their web site and completing all required loan documents online. Check your UCI e-mail for information in the coming weeks.
If you received a student loan you are required to complete Online Exit Interview Counseling during your last quarter of at least half-time enrollment. Your last quarter may precede graduating, transferring to another school, or taking a leave. You do not have to complete an Exit Interview during Summer breaks.
- For Campus Based loans (including Perkins, University, and Hawk), UCI and/or our loan servicer will contact you with instructions for completing your exit interview.
- If you also have a Direct Loan (including subsidized, unsubsidized, and PLUS), you are required to complete a separate online session at https://studentloans.gov.
Loan Repayment, Deferment, and Cancellation
The University of California has a new loan servicer for processing Campus Based Student Loan repayment, deferment, and cancellation transactions. You will be notified about when and how to contact the new servicer.
DO NOT send payments or documents to the former loan servicer. Contact a UCI Loan Services Representative at 949.824.6151 if you have any questions.
