Learn about Financial Aid

Don't leave money on the table – submit your application today!

If you missed the priority deadline to submit the 2021-2022 Financial Aid Application, you may still be eligible to receive financial aid! Since Spring 2020, priority Emergency Grant funding went to students who submitted their FAFSA or CADAA Application and we are expecting additional funding!

We accept applications until the end of the academic year. If you have not already applied for financial aid and wish to do so, please fill out a FAFSA or CADAA right away. 

Financial Aid disbursement and billing deadline

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 this link for information regarding the billing deadline.

Don't wait! Email the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships if your financial situation has changed or if you have any questions at finaid@csueastbay.edu.

Applying for financial aid

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 2021-2022 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.

If you are currently enrolled in Spring 2021 semester, you may qualify for additional aid.
