Paying Students

NEW IN 2016 – STUDENT PAYMENTS VIA SiS

With UC’s migration to the Student information System in 2016, we have changed the way we process student stipends and awards for UC Students:

  • Begin by entering your student’s information on our new Stipend Request form (link coming soon). This automatically generates emails alerting Business Services and Financial Aid to your request and creates a permanent record of the request. One student per submission, please.
  • All payments to students (other than reimbursements) have the potential to affect a student’s financial aid; Berkeley Law’s Financial Aid team will investigate your student’s specific situation before giving approval for the payment to move forward. You may receive an email from Financial Aid discussing the details.
  • Once approval is given from Financial Aid to proceed, Business Services will submit the award for approval in UC’s Student information System.
  • Financial Aid will then approve the award and confirm when the funds disburse. You’ll receive a confirmation email that you can pass along to the student in question.

If you have any questions about this process, please email us at inquiries@law.berkeley.edu. Questions regarding a student’s financial aid package and unique financial situation should be sent directly to our Financial Aid group at financial-aid-law@berkeley.edu.
