Please review the main webpages under the Financial Aid tab and the web pages under the tab applicable to your program for the estimated costs, types of aid available, and financial aid application procedures.

6-unit minimum for loan disbursements
Students must be enrolled in at least 6 units for the term in which they wish to receive any loan disbursements. If you are initially in at least 6 units and then drop to below 6 units at the end of the add/drop period, any loans that disbursed for that term will subsequently be returned. You would consequently be responsible for repaying the returned amount to CalCentral.
A note about Satisfactory Academic Progress
To maintain eligibility for federal and institutional aid, you must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). All graduate students are expected to maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 for continued participation in the program and graduation. If your GPA falls below the minimum, you will be placed on academic probation and may become ineligible for the undisbursed portion of any federal loan. Further, students must successfully complete at least 6 units each term that they are enrolled.

Please note that teams are developmental in nature and it is not unusual for a team to experience gaps in understanding or misalignment in how best to work together during the team life-cycle. The main contributing factors are coordination challenges, perceptions of uneven contributions to work, lack of goal alignment, and an underdeveloped collaborative team climate. Two critical strategies teams can use to transform these challenges and support the continued development of their teams is to participate in a [email protected] Check-In Workshop and/or spend more time together developing your relationships and interpersonal connections.
