Financial Aid - College of Professional & International Education (CPIE)

The CSULB College of Professional & International Education (CPIE) offers a offers a diverse range of degrees, professional development certificates, and courses. To establish financial aid eligibility, you must be formally admitted to a degree program and enrolled in courses that satisfy your degree program requirements.

State financial aid programs (Middle Class Scholarship, State University Grant) and fee waivers (including Cal-Vet fee waivers and CSU employee fee waivers) are not available for students enrolled through CPIE.

 

Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Arts - Degree Completion Program

Students pursuing their first Bachelor degree through this program may be eligible for the following types of financial aid:

  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Cal Grant (Fee Paying Award or Stipend)
  • Federal Direct Loans
  • Private Education Loans

Veterans may use their GI Bill benefits for these programs as well.

You may apply for financial aid by filing either the FAFSA or the California Dream Act Application (for Dream-eligible students). You must complete a new or renewal aid application for each academic year you wish to be funded. When completing your aid application, include CSULB as a college you want your information sent to. Our School Code is 001139.

If you are eligible for private education loans only, you do not need to file a FAFSA. These loans are borrowed directly from a lending institution.

Average Expense to Attend / Financial Aid Cost of Attendance
The Cost of Attendance is broadly defined as the average cost to attend a college for one academic year – the fall and spring semesters.  The Cost of Attendance budget helps you and the Financial Aid Office determine approximately how much money you need to attend your program, and how much financial aid you need to meet that goal. 

Tuition and fees are paid directly to CSULB and CPIE, but are only a part of your total education costs.  You also have to budget for room and board (housing and food), books, and transportation. Below are the estimated costs for these items – which, when combined – are your total estimated cost of attendance for one year:
