Financial Aid Letter - Letter Decoder - University of California-Davis

From the director of UC Davis' Financial Aid Office, Lora Jo Bossio:
Jargon: Bossio says Davis is saddled with an ancient computer system, which, unfortunately, can't be easily cured of quirks like printing useless characters next to some of the aid information. NH, for example, stands for nothing more than North Hall, which is where the financial aid office used to be located.

Bossio says her office can help arrange alternative financing, through Perkins or private loans. But her office also suggests students achieve their contributions by reducing their expenses.

Student Self Help Expectations and Contributions: Davis gives these terms to its assumption that students will contribute $4,000 in earnings each year to their college expenses.Davis also expects each student to borrow another $4,500 each year, which means each student has to come up with $8,500 a year somehow.That's a bit of a challenge for freshmen, who can't borrow more than $3,500 from the Stafford loan program.Bossio says her office can help arrange alternative financing, through Perkins or private loans.But her office also suggests students achieve their contributions by reducing their expenses.
