Type(s) of financial aid available to Continuing and Professional Education students:
In general, the Federal Student Aid programs are the main programs available to students enrolled in self-support programs. Within the CSU, the following Federal programs are available:
Federal Pell Grant (undergraduate and some teacher credential)
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)*
Federal TEACH Grant
Federal Direct Stafford Loans
Federal Direct Parent Loans & Graduate Parent Loans
Cal Grant (may not exceed tuition fees)
Middle Class Scholarship (MCS)
*Limited allocations to campus, with specific eligibility criteria (rationing), and not very likely these students would receive these awards.
Type(s) of financial aid not available to Continuing and Professional Education students:
CSU – State University Grant (SUG)
SUG requires the student be assessed “mandatory system-wide fees” (State Tuition Fee) to be eligible for payment. Continuing and Professional Education fees are separate and distinct from the State Tuition Fee and thus not eligible for payment by SUG.
Please Note: If you are receiving VA (Veteran’s Affairs) benefits, the length of weeks of this program may affect the aid that you receive. Please contact your VA counselor or the Veteran’s Affairs department on campus at (209) 667-3081 for more information.
