Welcome New Students!
Thank you for visiting the Web site of the CSU, Chico Financial Aid and Scholarship Office. We know the power of education to transform people’s lives. Therefore, we are committed to help all students overcome the financial barriers that may stand in the way of college.
While federal and state financial aid programs require you and your family to contribute toward college expenses, financial aid can help narrow the gap between your resources and your costs. We encourage all students to apply for financial aid by submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Even students, who do not qualify for need-based aid (grants), are usually eligible for federal loans that have student-friendly terms and low interest rates. Check us out, and contact our office if you have additional questions. The rest is up to you! We look forward to serving you in the coming year.
