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.
