Important 2020-21 Aid Information
Your financial aid award is an accurate reflection of your aid eligibility based on information available at the time you were awarded. Changes to your eligibility or in the availability of funding from federal, state, or institutional sources may result in your aid award being adjusted, even if you have already accepted funds. You must notify the UCCOM Office of Student Financial Services about other aid you are receiving or expect to receive that is not listed on your award offer.

Billing at the UCCOM is done one semester at a time. Fall semester bills are generated in July, while bills for spring semester are typically available in late November or early December. To view your student tuition bill, log in to Catalyst here and choose 'My Finances'. (Medical students will also receive notification via their UC email when their bill is ready to view.) Bills are due 5 days before the start of every semester.
Students are strongly advised to sign up for direct deposit. Students who do not sign up for direct deposit may have their refunds delayed. To sign-up, log in to the Catalyst student portal, choose the 'My Finances' tile, then 'Billing Information' and 'Direct Deposit Enrollment' to begin by adding a bank account to your record. Once added, then select 'Proceed to Enroll in Direct Deposit' to complete the sign-up process. For step-by-step screen shots for this process, click here. You will need your bank account and routing numbers available to complete this process. Continuing students who are employed part-time by the university (i.e. student tutors) must update their direct deposit in the UC Flex/ESS system.
You will automatically be billed for student health insurance. If you are currently enrolled in a health insurance plan that is equivalent or exceeds the UC student health insurance, you may WAIVE the UC health insurance by submitting the waiver form online here
