UPDATED UC PROFILES WEB SITE SHOWS HOW STUDENTS PAY FOR COLLEGE THIS YEAR
The University of California Web site, "You Can, We Can Help," has been updated and tells new stories of how current UC students finance their college education.
There are many new faces on the Web site and each student has a remarkable story to tell:
- There's a junior at UCLA who saved money during high school and made it to college from a tough East Los Angeles neighborhood.
- A senior transfer student at UC Santa Cruz who attended college on need based-grants and studied anthropology, and now intends to use her skills helping communities in India.
- One student-parent took 15 years to make it to UC Riverside and gets enough grant and loan assistance to raise her two children while attending college.
The student profiles demonstrate for prospective or current University of California students the wide range of financial aid resources available and show how students at a variety of income levels meet the challenges of paying for a UC education.
