Blue and Gold Opportunity Plan

The Blue and Gold Opportunity Plan is a financial aid program intended to expand access to the University of California for lower-income students.

UC's Blue and Gold Opportunity Plan will ensure that you will not have to pay UC's system-wide tuition and fees out of your own pocket if you are a California resident whose total family income is less than $80,000 per year and you qualify for financial aid - and that's just for starters.

Blue and Gold students with sufficient financial need can qualify for even more grant aid to help reduce the cost of attending.  Click here for more information!!
