Financial Aid Overview
STEP 1: Estimating Your Financial Aid Eligibility
If you are a high school or college student (freshman through senior) and would like an estimate of your financial aid eligibility, you can access this information on the Internet with the CSU Net Price Cost Calculator. It's free and available as an online form you use within your web browser.
How Does It Work?
The CSU Net Price Cost Calculator
is designed to allow you to estimate your financial aid eligibility. By answering a few questions online, you will receive information about your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), and estimated eligibility for grants and loans to attend a CSU campus. It is important to know that there may be other aid programs for which you are eligible. Also, it should be noted that there are circumstances (such as high parent or student assets) that could cause the student's EFC and grant/loan eligibility to be substantially different from this estimate. Remember that this is only a preliminary estimate.
