Receiving Scholarship Funds from Non-UCSD Organizations

Learn how to receive scholarship funds from an agency other than UCSD.

1. Ensure that the funds will be deposited correctly.

    1. If the scholarship is from an agency outside UCSD, and you haven't received your check, contact the agency and ask them to:
      • Send your scholarship check as soon as possible.
      • Make the check payable to "UC Regents."
      • Include your PID and full name on the check.
      • Mail the check to:
        Student Business Services
        9500 Gilman Drive Dept. 0026
        La Jolla, CA 92093-0026
        Attn: Scholarships

        Note: You are responsible to meet all payment deadlines regardless of delays in receipt or processing of your scholarship check.
    2. If you received the check directly from the agency and it is payable to UCSD:
      • Write your full name and PID on the check if it is not already printed on the check.
      • Deliver the check to Student Business Services (map)
        or
        Mail the check to:
      • Student Business Services
        9500 Gilman Drive Dept. 0026
        La Jolla, CA 92093-0026
        Attn: Scholarships

2. Understand how the funds are disbursed.

    1. Your scholarship funds, if greater than $1,000, will be divided into three quarterly disbursements unless UCSD is directed to do otherwise by the agency. If you want it fully applied to the current quarter, contact the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office, (858) 534-4480, to determine if this may be done.
    2. Your scholarship check will be processed the day it arrives at Student Business Services and credited to your student account within seven business days.
    3. Your scholarship check process can be delayed if:
      • Your PID is not shown clearly on the check.
      • You have a hold on your student account.
      • You do not meet enrollment or other eligibility requirements of the agency.
