CSUMB Financial Aid

CSUMB Financial Aid At CSUMB Financial Aid, we work to make sure students are not choosing between paying for tuition or food. Interested in paying for college? Contact us!

We're one of the 23 campuses that make up the California State University system. Like the other CSUs, our name comes from our location. Our 1,387-acre campus is one mile from the shores of Monterey Bay, between the Salinas Valley and Monterey Peninsula. We're affordable, like our sister CSUs, and we have a diverse and talented teaching faculty that provides the high quality level of education you expect from the California State University system.

Mission: Financial Aid provides support for students and parents who are figuring out how to pay for college expenses. We are here to serve students and parents throughout the entire process, from the financial aid application until graduation.

Processing of disbursements will start Friday of this week – make sure you have completed all items on your To-Do List to avoid any delays!

If you are expecting a refund, the fastest way to get your refund is through direct deposit. If you were not able to sign up for direct deposit for this term, but would like to sign up for future terms, visit csumb.edu/oasis/erefunds-direct-deposits to find out how.

The financial aid office is open Monday - Friday from 8 am to 5 pm to answer any questions or contact us at [email protected].

Hi Otters! We hope you are enjoying the last few weeks of summer, but please don't forget the payment deadline is August 1! Check your CSUMB email and your "To-Do" items on OASIS to make sure you have completed all your requirements. If you do do not have sufficient aid and/or payments to cover your tuition and fees, you may be dis-enrolled from your Fall 2019 classes.

Questions about your financial aid requirements? Don't see a payment extension on your account? Contact the financial aid office as soon as possible to avoid dis-enrollment!

How to check your account balance

Looking for a productive study break?

Vanessa, a student worker at the financial aid office, can walk you through how to check your account balance for spring semester. Please keep in mind that this is only a sample account used as an example and does not reflect any student in particular.

All spring 2019 fees are due by January 3, 2019. Check to see how much your financial aid covers and if you need to make any payments by the deadline.

The end of fall semester is fast-approaching. This means coffee, finals, papers, presentations, and group projects!

Before you leave campus for a well-deserved winter break, please be mindful that spring semester is coming up. The deadline to pay all your fees is January 3, 2019.

You can check your OASIS Student Service Center under “Holds” for a “PMT Extension/No Disenrollment” hold which means that you do not need to worry about making a payment by the deadline.

If you received an email from us on Monday evening, please be sure to check how much you owe by subtracting your pending financial aid from the total CSUMB fees owed.

Check back for a video tutorial today on how to check your balance.

Last week, Financial Aid Counselors Ashlie and Christina distributed food at the Associated Students Food Pantry. With 36% of college students considered “food insecure,” we want to work together to decrease that number.

🤝Today and tomorrow you can help by donating your blocks during lunch (11am - 2pm) in the Dining Commons.

🍎The next food pantry is on Tues, Dec. 4
12:30pm-2:30pm & 4:30pm-6:30pm in the Student Center, West Lounge. Free with Otter ID!
