Financial Aid


Student financial aid programs are available to assist students in meeting the costs of obtaining a postsecondary education. Funding for student financial aid programs is provided by federal and state governments, postsecondary institutions, public and private organizations, and community and service groups.

CSU campuses participate in all federal and state student financial aid programs and administer some programs specific to the CSU and the individual campus. Financial Aid offices at each campus have professional staff members to administer these programs and to advise students regarding financing their education.
