Getting Your Aid - Graduate Students

For the majority of students enrolled in classes, accepted financial aid will automatically be credited to student bills 10 days prior to the start of classes – each semester. 

In order for your financial aid to be released (or disbursed for payment of university-related charges), you must:

  • Have an Award Summary that contains “Official” awards, as opposed to estimated awards
  • Have Accepted the Awards on Your Award Summary
  • Complete your To-Do List on your MyCSULB Student Center
  • Loan borrowers – complete the required loan steps for new borrowers
  • Enroll in classes
  • Be maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
