Understanding State University Grant Eligibility

Effective with the Fall 2013 semester, the California State University has established eligibility limitations on a student’s ability to receive a State University Grant. These limitations are designed to ensure that students receiving state funding develop and maintain a timely path toward the completion of program/degree requirements.

Note: SUG Eligibility is determined annually based upon a student’s Expected Family Contribution, completion of the FAFSA or DREAM application by the March 2nd priority deadline, submission of all requested documents, and is subject to availability of funds.

SUG eligible students will be subject to limitations which cover several areas, as outlined below.
