Have you decided you want to borrow less money than offered to you on your Financial Aid Notification (FAN) this academic year? Here are the steps you should take to reduce your loan amount on your FAN or through the Financial Aid Office.
If you have not yet completed your Financial Aid Notification (FAN), you can reduce a loan amount directly on the FAN.
If you have already completed your FAN and would now like to reduce a loan amount, you will need to contact the Financial Aid Office.
You should receive a response within ten business days. You can check the status of your application on your MyUCLA by clicking on 'Tracking Required Documents', which can be found under the 'Awards and Notices' tab.
