After You Apply - Credential Students
Your financial aid application information will be sent to the CSULB Financial Aid Office electronically within 5 – 7 business days of when you complete it. Your application will be processed by CSULB if:
- You listed CSULB school code 001139 on your application for financial aid.
- For FAFSA Applicants, you provided your correct Social Security Number on your application for admission and your FAFSA.
- For DREAM Applicants, the name (last, first and middle) and date of birth on record with CSULB matches the name and date of birth on your Dream Act application.
You will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) after your application has been processed. The SAR is a summary of the information you entered on your financial aid application (FAFSA or Dream Act Application). You should review this document for accuracy and follow any instructions provided. Be sure to print a copy for your records.
If, after reviewing your SAR, you find an error in the information you submitted, you can make a correction. Note that your financial aid application is a snapshot in time, so you should only be making true corrections to mistakes, rather than updating information to match a new circumstance. If you are classified as a “Dependent” student, both you andyour parent will need to electronically sign the correction
