Financial Aid Information

Need Financial Aid? If you missed the priority deadline to submit the 2022-2023 Financial Aid Application, you may still be eligible to receive financial aid! 

Emergency relief funding Enrolled students may be eligible for Emergency Relief Funds for the fall semester based on requirements and guidelines as administered by the Office of Financial Aid. To be considered for immediate and priority funding, make sure to submit your FAFSA or CADAA application right away.

Receiving Financial Aid: If you have received your Financial Aid award, be sure to accept your award on MyCSUEB.

Financial Aid Topics

Financial Aid typically disburses within 10 days prior to the start of the academic term. If you have financial aid in excess of your bill, the Student Financial Services Department will issue a refund to you after the disbursement. Be sure to sign up for Direct Deposit to receive your refund more quickly. Otherwise, you will be issued a check which can take weeks to arrive! 

During the payment deadline, the Student Financial Services Department will review the amount of funds that you have accepted for the term and will consider the amount as payment. Remember that you are responsible for the difference between your Financial Aid and your total bill. Visit the Student Financial Services & Cashier's Office to learn about each semester's billing deadline. 

Don't wait! Email the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships if you have any questions at finaid@csueastbay.edu.

Make sure to submit your FAFSA or CADAA application every year, by the priority deadline of March 2. The applications go live each year on October 1. 

If you missed the priority deadline to submit the 2022-2023 Financial Aid Application, you may still be eligible to receive financial aid! 

1. Citizens and Eligible Non Citizens who submit the FAFSA application may still be considered for the Federal Pell Grant, Federal SEOG Grant, and Federal Student Loans to assist in meeting their cost of attendance.

2. Dreamers can still take advantage of the California Student Aid Commission's (CSAC) Competitive Grant funding process. Each semester, CSAC reallocates unspent grants to eligible students who did not receive the Cal Grant at the start of the year but have submitted their California Dream Act Application. Visit this website to learn more information about the Cal Grant Renewal process.

Since Spring 2020, priority Emergency Grant funding went to students who submitted their FAFSA or CADAA Application, and we are expecting additional funding for the 2022-2023 Academic Year. Don't leave money on the table and submit your application today! We accept applications until the end of the academic year!

If your financial situation has changed since you first applied for aid, please contact Financial Aid by sending an email to finaid@csueastbay.edu from your Horizon student email account.
