In light of the recent government shutdown, the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships announced Tuesday there will most likely “not be a negative impact on educational services and financial aid programs,” although the UC may experience cuts in the face of a prolonged government shutdown.

The statement also said the UC will do everything in its power to protect UC students from baring the brunt of a short government shutdown by “advancing UC funds to substitute for federal financial aid so that financial aid reaches the students when promised.” The state reiterated that a federal government shutdown that remains short will not immediately impact students or educational services.
