Payment Policy-WIOA and TAA Funding

Many of our students receive funding through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), which was signed into law in 2014.

UC Santa Cruz Extension works closely with several great agencies throughout California. Note: UCSC Extension does not have the ability to approve a student for funding.

For more information, reach out to individual agencies for guidance.

Eligibility requirements

  • Over 18 years old
  • Authorized to work in the U.S.
  • Dislocated worker
  • Adult priority (homeless, receiving public assistance, limited computer literacy, high school dropout)

Out-of-pocket expenses

In most cases, funding will only cover the minimum number of required units to complete the program for which you are approved. Any out-of-pocket expenses are determined on a case-by-case basis by Extension. Students will be notified and responsible for additional costs.
