The Financial Aid office assists students in obtaining financial aid resources to meet their educational costs. Students interested in applying for financial aid must complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. A variety of financial aid resources are available to students, including grants, loans, federal work study, and scholarships. After students have completed and submitted the FAFSA, they may be considered for the following:

Federal & State Grants

Federal or state funds that do not have to be repaid:

  • Federal Pell Grants are awarded to eligible students with financial need who have not already earned a bachelor’s degree or who are working toward a teaching credential.
  • Cal Grants are awarded to California residents with financial need and who meet the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) scholastic and need requirements.
  • State University Grants are awarded to California residents. Students are considered for the State University Grant based on their need and the availability of funds.

Federal Direct Stafford Loans

A Federal Direct Stafford Loan is a low-interest loan available to college students who are enrolled at least half-time, enrolled in a degree granting program, and meet other basic requirements. These loans do not require credit approval; eligibility is determined by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application. Payment of principal is deferred while students are enrolled in school at least half-time. After you graduate, withdraw or drop to less than half-time enrollment, you will have a six-month grace period during which time no payment on principal will be due. Repayment on the principal amount begins at the conclusion of the grace period.

Beginning with the 2012-2013 academic year, graduate students will only be eligible for the Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. Students enrolled only in a Teacher Credential program will still be eligible for the Subsidized Stafford Loan as they are not considered to be “graduate students” for financial aid purposes.

Federal Work Study

The Federal Work Study (FWS) program is a financial aid program funded by the federal government and is intended to provide part-time employment opportunities for eligible students who need additional financial resources to pursue a college education. The offer of work study does not guarantee that a job will be available that matches the student’s class schedule or desired field. In some cases, if a student is unable to find work, student loans can be increased if the student has not already borrowed the maximum for the year.

Scholarships

The University, in participation with the community, has an endowment, as well as annual donations, that provide scholarships based on academic excellence, financial need and community service. This annual scholarship opportunity takes place each spring and applications are open to both new and continuing students. Students may complete a scholarship application, which is found on the Financial Aid website.
