You Can Still Apply for Financial Aid:
The priority deadline to submit the 2024-2025 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and CADAA (California Dream Act Application) was May 2, 2024. Students may still apply for aid until June 30, 2025 but may not qualify for certain types of aid. Learn more about FAFSA Simplification.

There are various forms of financial aid opportunities that are available to students depending on eligibility. Remember, your financial aid package will always align with your unit load (for example, if you drop a class and have 6 units of coursework vs. 9 units, this may impact your financial aid amount as you will move from being considered a full-time-student to a part-time student). If your financial or educational situation changes after you have applied for aid, you may apply for an appeal.

Available aid programs may include, but are not limited to:

  • Scholarships
  • Federal Grants
  • State Grants
  • CSULB Grants
  • Federal Student Loans
  • Federal Work-Study

The CSULB Financial Aid and Scholarships team is here to support you with resources and tools that may help you apply for aid and fund your educational goals.
