State university fees are your tuition and fees for being a student. These fees are determined by the state of California.

Before releasing funds, we make sure: A valid high school transcript is on file if you're a freshman. You meet Satisfactory Academic Progress. You are registered for the required number of units. Loan entrance counseling and Master Promissory Note is completed if you are a student loan borrower.
We begin disbursing funds 10 days prior to the start of each term and continue weekly as long as you meet all other eligibility criteria.

When will my financial aid funds be released? Your financial aid funds are released and applied to your outstanding charges with the university starting 10 days prior to the start of each term, and weekly thereafter, if you are enrolled in sufficient units; you are not on a financial aid academic plan for Satisfactory Academic Progress SAP requirements; have not been paid and you have no outstanding items on your financial aid To-Do List.
Students on a financial aid academic plan will experience a delay in the disbursement of their spring aid until fall grades are reviewed and enrollment is complete.

While your financial aid funds are being released, your anticipated aid will disappear. This is normal and part of the process that facilitates the release of your financial aid funds. When will I receive my remaining financial aid funds? If you have signed up for eRefund and your charges with the university are paid, any remaining financial aid funds will be deposited into the designated bank account after your charges with the university are paid.
If you did not sign up for eRefund, a check will be sent to the address on file with the university by regular mail. Please allow up to 10 business days for postal delivery of your refund check. For questions about lost or stolen checks, please contact University Cash Services. If you paid your tuition using a credit card, please contact University Cash Services for details regarding the tuition refund process. Generally, a refund is issued to your credit card. After university charges have been paid, you may use any remaining financial aid funds to cover education-related expenses, including books and supplies; a personal computer or other education-related technology; and living and transportation expenses.
You must budget any funds you receive, and attempt to make the money last for the entire rest of the semester. For tips on money management and budgeting, visit the Financial Literacy website. What if the financial aid funds I receive are not enough to cover my charges? If you do not have enough anticipated aid to cover university charges, you must pay the difference out of pocket by the established payment deadlines to avoid being dropped from your classes.
How will my financial aid change if my unit load changes? If you are registered less than full time, your initial award amount is subject to reduction or cancellation. Your initial award represents the maximum amount you may receive if registered full time. The amount disbursed to your student account may change depending on the number of units you are enrolled in. Financial aid counselors can explain the pros and cons of changing your enrollment status and how it affects your financial aid.

What if I drop a class or withdraw after I have received my aid payment? If you drop a class, you may be required to repay part or all of the funds received.
For example, if you receive a full-time federal Pell grant payment, percent of the awarded amount, and you drop to 9 units, your enrollment status changes from full time to three-quarter time; therefore, you may have to repay 25 percent of the amount already received What if I drop any or all my classes? Please read the withdrawal policy. What if I need additional funds? Please research scholarship opportunities and private education loans for additional sources of aid.
Undergraduate dependent students may review information about parent PLUS loans. Graduate students may review information about graduate PLUS loans. After you're awarded, the amount will show as anticipated aid. Select and finalize your class schedule prior to payment of your funds.

The adjustment in aid may result in new charges, and you may no longer be eligible for aid to cover those charges. Review your personalized financial aid award information on the portal. If you are receiving a full or partial fee waiver from another source, such as a scholarship, academic or athletic award, or a stipend that is not recorded in your financial aid awards, you must report the resource immediately to the Financial Aid and Scholarship Department.
