programs. Within the CSU, the following Federal programs are
Federal Pell Grant (undergraduate and some teacher
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 fee)
*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)
State – Middle Class Scholarship (MCS)
SUG and MCS require the student to be assessed “mandatory
systemwide fees” (State Tuition Fee) to be eligible for
payment. Extended Education fees are separate and distinct
from the State Tuition Fee and thus not eligible for payment by
SUG or MCS.
Other Sources of Financial Assistance:
Federal and state training funds
Scholarship funds from donors
Other financial loans
