Parents and Families of Undergraduate Students

Congratulations Parents and Families!

Parents can play an important role in helping their student graduate from college, especially when it comes to Financial Aid.

While federal and state aid programs expect students and their families to contribute toward college expenses, financial aid can help narrow the gap between your resources and your costs. We encourage all students to apply for financial aid by submitting either a FAFSA or CA Dream Application. Even families who do not qualify for need-based grants may be eligible for loans that have borrower-friendly repayment terms and low interest rates.

Reminder about Privacy and Student Records: Students 18 years or older may review the FERPA for Students page to learn more about their record privacy rights. If interested, students may use MyCSULB to grant information access permissions for third parties, including parents.
