Blue and Gold Opportunity Program

<p>My family was impacted by the recession and this will be the first year that our income bracket falls within the $80k-$120k range. The school has said families who fall into this range will not have to pay for the increases in tuition fees. I was wondering how the school plans on ensuring that this happens because I have no aid other than loans in my eFan. My FAFSA and GPA verification were both submitted on time, but the Cal Grants website says I'm not eligible for anything.</p>

<p>It could be possible that your assets exceeds the maximum ceiling. Other factors could be involved. I would suggest you to call the UCLA Financial Aid Office and let them check into your records and specifically ask them, "Why am I not getting CalGrant". They usually can tell you.</p>

<p>Once you don't get the CALGRANTS straight out of high school, you no longer are eligable for them whatsoever (this is, at least, what I was told as my families finances took a similar turn). They (UCLA) should make up for it though with a grant, however, due to the fact you are only receiving loans, your EFC is likely greater than 20k. What is your EFC if I may ask? </p>

<p>Also, if things are, financially, only now starting to show (remember, FAFSA uses the last year's data for next years expenses), you can appeal/send verifications in an attempt to get more aid.</p>

<p>If you have a high EFC but income still below $80,000, do you still get blue and gold?</p>
