Financial and Tuition Assistance and Tax Credits


Does the money you have for school add up to the money you need?

Tax Credits

UC Riverside Extension Students may be eligible for a Federal Tax Credit through the Taxpayer Relief Act (TRA) of 1997.

The Taxpayer Relief Act (TRA) included a number of education tax benefits applicable to individuals completing postsecondary coursework. These include the Hope Scholarship Tax Credit and the Lifetime Learning Credit which provide for a nonrefundable tax credit for out-of-pocket qualified tuition and related expenses of students in the taxpayer's family (the taxpayer, the taxpayer's spouse or eligible dependents).

For more information, contact your tax consultant or preparer, or visit www.1098t.com and www.irs.gov.

As a UCR Extension student, you may be eligible for private financial assistance. The following is provided for information purposes only.

Student Loans

UC Riverside Extension has arranged with certain lenders listed below to offer competitive loans to students in continuing education programs. The loan amount requested can include course and textbook costs as well as living expenses that are appropriate to the cost of attendance.

UCR Extension does not endorse or otherwise recommend one lending source over any other sources. In addition to the lenders listed here, you may want to contact your current bank or other lending institution to ask if they have a student or continuing education loan. Carefully review the terms and conditions; the loan is from the lending institution and not from UC Riverside Extension. UCR Extension will work with any student loan lender, however established relationships with the lenders listed here may allow more expeditious loan certification and check distribution.

Enter the Student Loan Application Portal

Review the University of California Code of Conduct in Regard to Preferred Lender Arrangements.

 

Once approved by the lender, a student loan check is disbursed to UC Riverside Extension, payable to the student, and usually timed to arrive when needed to pay course fees, though it can take four weeks after applying to receive the first loan check. UCR Extension will notify you when the loan check is available, let you know when loan funds are needed and confirm your enrollment status.

It is recommended that you begin the loan application process early as UCR Extension does not enroll students in courses until payment is received, and applying for a loan does not reserve a space in the course.

For more information on financing your continuing education, call Student Services at (951) 827-4105 or e-mail register@ucx.ucr.edu.

Tuition Assistance

 

Displaced or disadvantaged workers may be eligible for federal assistance through the Employment Development Department (EDD) of California. For students who qualify, funds may be applied toward the cost of UCR Extension course fees, books and materials.

  • City of San Bernardino, Employment and Training Agency, (909) 888-7881
  • County of San Bernardino, Workforce Development Department, (800) 451-5627
