Berkeley Haas students receive several forms of financial assistance, which can include federal and private loans, Haas Scholarships, and instructorships. Please review the web pages on the left under this main Financial Aid tab and the webpages under the tab applicable to your program for the estimated costs, types of aid, and financial aid procedures.

We are committed to assisting students to explore all the financing options available and in doing so, building a financial bridge to your academic endeavors. During your experience at Berkeley Haas, our office is your main point of contact, rather than the University’s Financial Aid and Scholarships Office.

Relief for Student Loan Borrowers

On March 27, 2020, the president signed the CARES Act into law, which, among other things, provides broad relief for federal student loan borrowers. Below are a few important details. Read the borrower Q&As to learn more.
  • Interest is being temporarily set at 0% on federal student loans from March 13, 2020, through Sept. 30, 2020
  • Your payments will automatically stop from March 13, 2020, through Sept. 30, 2020
  • The U.S. Department of Education does not have legal authority over private student loans, so they are not covered by the president’s forbearance announcement.

To determine if your private loan lender is providing any type of relief for those who are experiencing financial difficulties during the COVID-19 national emergency, please contact your lender directly.
