Financial Aid

Evening & Weekend MBA

The Haas Financial Aid Office at the University of California, Berkeley exists to help students efficiently secure the best federal, institutional, and outside funding to achieve their degrees.

Over 50 percent of Evening & Weekend MBA students receive some form of financial assistance, which can include federal and private loans, Haas Scholarships, and instructorships. Please review the main webpages under the Financial Aid tab and the web pages under the tab applicable to your program for the estimated costs, types of aid available, and financial aid application procedures.

We are committed to assisting students explore all the financing options available and in doing so, building a financial bridge to your academic endeavors. During your experience at Berkeley-Haas, our office is your main point of contact, rather than the University's Financial Aid and Scholarships Office.


Effective Fall 2016: All students will use CalCentral to review bills and financial aid award letters.

6-unit minimum for loan disbursements

Students must be enrolled in at least 6 units for the term in which they wish to receive any loan disbursements. If you are initially in at least 6 units and then drop to below 6 units at the end of the add/drop period, any loans that disbursed for that term will subsequently be returned. You would consequently be responsible for repaying the returned amount to CalCentral.

A note about Satisfactory Academic Progress

To maintain eligibility for federal and institutional aid, you must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). All graduate students are expected to maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 for continued participation in the program and graduation. If your GPA falls below the minimum, you will be placed on academic probation and may become ineligible for the undisbursed portion of any federal loan. Further, students must successfully complete at least 6 units each term that they are enrolled.
