Program and Policy Updates
Beginning fall 2013, Cal State East Bay and all other CSU campuses limited students’ State University Grant (SUG) eligibility to a specific number of completed course units. In addition, only full-time students may receive this grant. To receive SUG fulltime students must meet the following criteria each quarter:
Certain units, including advanced placement, international baccalaureate, military credit and pre-baccalaureate credit and credit by examination will not count against this new SUG limits.
Students borrowing a first Direct Loan on or after July 1, 2013 may not receive Direct Subsidized Loan for more than 150% of the published length of their program. If the borrower exceeds the Direct Subsidized Loan limit, the borrower becomes responsible for the accruing interest on the Direct Subsidized Loans.
A recent Federal Regulation limits the number of years a student may receive a Pell Grant to the equivalent of six years of fulltime enrollment. To view the amount of Pell eligibility you have used, you may access the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) at: www.nslds.ed.gov/nslds_SA/ You must use your Federal PIN to access this web site.
