Addalou Davis Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP)

McGeorge School of Law is one of many leading ABA institutions that has a Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) to make low-paying, public interest jobs more attractive to its students. Eligible graduates are licensed attorneys employed full-time in a non-profit organization or governmental agency that provides representation to persons who could not otherwise obtain such services.

Candidates must meet minimum debt requirements and have an annual adjusted gross income of less than $55,000. This program acts as a form of post-graduate aid, enabling graduates to accept public interest jobs because they receive a grant from the law school to help reduce their monthly loan obligation. Graduates who maintain a long-term career in the public interest field can potentially receive this assistance until all of their loans are repaid. For detailed information, graduates can contact the Financial Aid Office. Applications are available in October of each year on the McGeorge School of Law website or by request from the Financial Aid Office.

Public Legal Services Society Summer Grants

The Public Legal Services Society at McGeorge School of Law, a student organization for those interested in pursuing a career in the public interest area, funds several summer grants to permit students to accept positions with public service agencies during the summer months. Applications are available in March of each year. Among other eligibility requirements, students must complete a specified number of volunteer hours at PLSS events and be a dues-paying member of the club. More information is available on the PLSS blog at blogs.mcgeorge.edu/PLSS.

Application for Financial Aid

To be considered for Federal loan programs, Federal Work-Study, endowed and direct scholarships, students must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Priority deadline is the first Friday in March. Information and application forms for endowed and direct scholarships are provided to enrolled students each year by the Financial Aid Office and are available on the McGeorge School of Law website. All forms are available on the McGeorge School of Law website.

Return of Title IV Funds

Federal law requires that financial aid recipients who withdraw have their Federal funds adjusted based on the Federal Return of Title IV Formula. Return of Title IV funds is a federally mandated policy that applies only to students who receive federal financial aid and who withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take a Leave of Absence prior to completing 60% of a semester. The Return of Title IV funds policy does not apply to students who reduce their units but remain enrolled. Return of Title IV Funds will be used to determine how much aid, if any, must be returned to Title IV loan programs. The Title IV funds considered in the policy are the Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan and the Federal Plus Loan. The policy does not apply to the Federal Work-Study Program.

The Return of Title IV funds calculation identifies two types of federal aid, earned and unearned. The earned aid is based on a percentage calculated by dividing the number of days the student completed by the number of days in the payment period. A student who remains enrolled beyond the 60% point earns all disbursed (received) and disbursable aid. Disbursable aid includes aid received and the aid that could have been (but was not) disbursed as of the withdrawal date. If earned aid exceeds disbursed aid, a post-withdrawal disbursement may be made. McGeorge School of Law will first credit post-withdrawal disbursements toward unpaid tuition and fees.

McGeorge School of Law will offer the student any part of the post-withdrawal disbursement not credited to school charges. Within 45 days of a determination that the student withdrew the student will be provided with a written notification of any post-withdrawal funds that are available to the student. No post-withdrawal disbursement will be made if the student does not respond within 14  days of the notification date.

Unearned aid is any disbursed aid that exceeds the amount of Title IV aid the student earned. The unearned aid amount is to be returned to the lender, a responsibility shared by the University of the McGeorge School of Law and the student. McGeorge School of Law is responsible for returning the lesser of the total amount of unearned aid or McGeorge School of Law charges multiplied by the percentage of unearned aid. McGeorge School of Law charges used in the Return of Title IV Funds calculation includes the amount that had been assessed to the student’s account before the student’s withdrawal. The student is responsible for the difference between the total unearned amount and McGeorge School of Law share.

McGeorge School of Law must return its share of unearned funds no later than 45 days after it determines that the student withdrew. Students must repay their share according to the terms and conditions stated in their promissory note(s). Funds returned to lenders by McGeorge School of Law will be distributed first to the Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan and the Federal Plus Loan.

Yellow Ribbon Program FAQ

What is the Yellow Ribbon Program?

The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. This program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and VA will match the same amount at the institution.

What VA and community resources are available to assist me?

There are many resources available to help you:

Who is Eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program?

Only Veterans entitled to the maximum benefit rate of 100 percent, as determined by the service requirements, or their designated transferees may receive Yellow Ribbon benefits from Pacific and the VA. Active duty Service members and their spouses are not eligible for this program.

The general eligibility requirements for the Yellow Ribbon Program include:

  • You served an aggregate period of 36 months in active duty after Sept. 10, 2001.
  • You were honorably discharged from active duty for a service-connected disability and you served 30 continuous days after Sept. 10, 2001.
  • You are a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill® based on the service eligibility criteria listed above.

We encourage all Veterans to review the eligibility criteria directly from the VA’s website at http://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/yellow_ribbon.asp.

What are McGeorge’s Yellow Ribbon Benefits?

Only McGeorge students are eligible to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program at McGeorge School of Law.

  • This award will be offered to a maximum of 60 eligible McGeorge veterans
  • They will receive up to 100% of the unmet established charges (tuition & student fees) per academic year
  • The actual amount will vary based on the number of units taken and charged for each semester. Under the Yellow Ribbon Program, the Department of Veterans Affairs will then match McGeorge’s contributions made to the eligible veterans each academic year that the University participates in the program.

How will McGeorge select Yellow Ribbon Program benefit recipients?

Students will be selected for the Yellow Ribbon Program award based on a first come first serve basis, determined by the date and time your application is received by the V.A. Representative (Registrar’s Office). Once the maximum awards available (60) have been offered, no additional Yellow Ribbon Program awards will be offered by McGeorge until a Yellow Ribbon recipient graduates.

How Do I Apply for Yellow Ribbon Benefits under Post-9/11 GI Bill®?

The Department of Veterans Affairs is now processing applications for the Post-9/11 GI Bill®. Interested students should complete and submit the application form online at http://www.gibill.va.gov.

To complete an application online, you will need McGeorge’s VA Code number: 3-1-8912-05.

You will receive written notification explaining the VA's decision regarding your eligibility for the Post-9/11 GI Bill® and the Yellow Ribbon program. If you are eligible, you will receive a Certificate of Eligibility (COE) that specifies you are "potentially eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program." The final funding decision, however, will be made by Pacific.

For questions regarding COE, contact the veteran's administration at 1.888.GIBILL1 (1.888.442.4551) to speak with an Education Case Manager.

Once you receive your COE and are deemed potentially eligible for the Yellow Ribbon Program, complete Pacific's Yellow Ribbon Application (pdf) and submit your COE along with your application to Pacific's Office of the Registrar. Upon receipt of your COE, the Office of the Registrar will verify your eligibility to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program.

How will I know if I have received the Yellow Ribbon Program benefit from McGeorge?

If you receive a Yellow Ribbon award, it will be coordinated into your financial aid award in accordance with all federal, state and institutional rules and regulations. You will be notified of the award by e-mail, from Pacific’s Sacramento Campus certifying official.

How is this benefit applied to my student account?

The McGeorge portion of your Yellow Ribbon award will credit to your account once you meet all enrollment and disbursement requirements.

The VA match of your Yellow Ribbon award will be issued directly to the law school on your behalf after your enrollment certification is processed by the VA.

Will my Yellow Ribbon Award be renewed?

McGeorge will offer you a Yellow Ribbon Program award as long as the following apply:

  • McGeorge continues to participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program (The University of the Pacific's participation in the Yellow Ribbon program is voluntary. McGeorge may choose to change the contribution amount offered in future years or may choose not to participate in the program altogether.)
  • You remain in good academic standing as defined in the McGeorge Academic Catalog and Student Handbook
  • You have not been disciplined under the McGeorge Code of Student Responsibility
  • You have remaining entitlement as defined by the VA

Financial Aid on this page is for the following undergraduate program on the Sacramento campus.

University College

Organizational Behavior

The University maintains a substantial student financial assistance program that includes scholarships, grants, loans and job opportunities. Detailed financial aid information and application instructions are available at www.pacific.edu/About-Pacific/AdministrationOffices/Office-of-Financial-Aid.html.

Students who wish to be considered for academic merit-based scholarships are advised to complete the admission application process by the appropriate deadline or priority date. Students who seek other University scholarships, grants, work-study, or loans or whose parents wish to apply for a Federal Direct PLUS Loan must also file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and complete other application procedures as instructed by the Financial Aid Office. In addition, financial aid applicants who are legal residents of California and do not already have a bachelor’s degree are expected to apply for a Cal Grant. High schools and colleges have information about the Cal Grant programs and application procedures.

Students are advised to file the FAFSA electronically at the Federal Student Aid Web site. A worksheet and instructions may be downloaded from the Web site, or may be secured at a high school or college or from the University. The priority FAFSA filing date for entering Pacific students is January 15. Pacific awards financial aid to students who apply after the admission and financial aid priority dates; however, late awards may be less favorable.

A student must be approved for admission as a regular student to an eligible degree or certificate program before financial aid can be awarded. Students must enroll on at least a half-time basis to qualify for most financial aid and some awards require full-time enrollment. Aid is usually awarded for the entire school year, with the full-year amount divided equally among the semesters or trimesters of enrollment. Please note that financial aid eligibility is re-evaluated when a student completes pre-professional work and enters a professional program.

Financial aid at the University is available only to U.S. citizens, permanent residents and other eligible non-citizens.

When a financial aid recipient withdraws during a semester, the student’s financial aid is adjusted according to federal and state regulations and University policy. Details are available on the Financial Aid website under Student Consumer Information.

Academic Requirements

Federal regulations require the Financial Aid Office to ensure that financial aid recipients maintain acceptable academic standing and make satisfactory progress in their programs of study.

Students placed on academic probation may receive financial aid, but students who are academically disqualified are placed on financial aid disqualification. Financial aid recipients are also expected to complete satisfactorily at least 67% of all units attempted and to obtain their degrees within a specified maximum period of full-time study. Access to financial aid to pay for repeated courses is limited by federal regulations.

For further information, please refer to the Academic Probation and Disqualification Policy Statement in this catalog and the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy Statement available from the Financial Aid Office.
