Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available for this MBA program.  It is recommended that you start the financial aid process as early as possible - even if you are undecided if you want aid. 

Submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form at your earliest convenience. You do not need to be admitted into the program to file your form.  Please use the following institution code when filling out your FAFSA Application: 001157. Mail the application to the address listed on the form. It takes approximately 4-6 weeks to process your FAFSA.**

Additionally, contact the Stanislaus State Financial Aid Office for information regarding other programs available to help you meet your educational expenses.  There may be scholarships available through the university, the graduate school, or the department that you may qualify for.

Graduate Equity Fellowships are funded by the CSU system and are available each Fall. These fellowships increase the diversity of students completing graduate degree programs in the CSU by providing assistance to economically disadvantaged students.  Recipients are awarded funds to defray the costs of tuition and books.  The application deadline occurs in late September.

** Become familiar with all the Terms & Conditions of your financial aid awards. Specifically, if you are admitted into the program, your bachelor’s degree must have cleared, and your official transcripts must be received for you to enroll in courses and have financial aid be disbursed.  Enrollment in at least two MBA/graduate courses per semester is required for you to be eligible to receive financial aid.
