Why hasn't my financial aid paid?

There are a number of reasons your financial aid may not have yet paid. Financial aid is generally disbursed within 10 days of the start of the semester. The most common reasons for aid not disbursing are that your file is incomplete, you have a hold on your registration, or you have not finalized all the steps necessary to access your awards. For more information, please refer to the messages in CalCentral or stop by Cal Student Central to talk with an adviser.
