Financial Aid

Pell Grant eligible students who have one full term of remaining Pell Grant eligibility will have their Pell Grant award automatically posted to their financial aid award for Summer Session 2019 (includes May Session 2019). Students who wish to pursue federal loan options should submit a Summer Financial Aid Request beginning Tuesday, February 19. The deadline to apply is April 26, 2019. Students must have a complete financial aid file to be considered for summer funding. Students should check their “TO DO” list on GET to determine if they have any outstanding and required documents. Summer financial aid requests WILL NOT be processed for students with outstanding financial aid documents. Read more about the "Year 'Round Pell Grant" and how it can ensure your timely graduation here.

NOTE: If you are enrolled less than full-time (12 units undergraduate; 12 weighted units graduate), most financial aid programs require a prorated reduction in your awards. Examples of the required proration for undergraduate students are as follows:

12 units = 100% 9-11 units = 75%
6-8 units = 50% 1-5 units = 25%

Steps to apply (for loans only): 

  1. Complete a Cal State LA Summer 2019 Financial Aid Summer financial aid request.
  2. PLAN AHEAD!  Meet with your Financial Aid Advisor to verify if you have any remaining eligibility from the current 2018-19 academic year that can be used for Summer 2019.
  3. If you wish to take advantage of your student loan options, please complete the loan process during the current academic year. The deadline is April 26, 2019.

Please review the Cal State LA Financial Assistance Summer Session 2019 webpage for more information on financial aid requests, general eligibility for summer financial aid and types of financial aid programs available. Please note that May Session is included in Summer 2019 financial aid guidelines.
