About Estimates and Financial Aid

Please Note: The estimates used in the net price calculator apply to full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students only.

These estimates do not represent a final determination, or actual award, of financial assistance or a final net price; they are only estimates based on cost of attendance and financial aid provided to students in 2015-16. Cost of attendance and financial aid availability change year to year. These estimates shall not be binding on the Secretary of Education, the institution of higher education, or the State. 

Not all students receive financial aid. In 2015-16, 63% of our full-time students enrolling for college for the first time received grant/scholarship aid. Students may also be eligible for student loans and work-study. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)(opens in new window) in order to determine their eligibility for Federal financial aid that includes Federal grant, loan, or work-study assistance.

You may access the CSU, Chico Financial Aid & Scholarship Office website for more information about completing the FAFSA, applying for private scholarship sources, actual cost of attendance information, types of financial aid, policies and conditions, and a financial aid calendar.
