College costs and financing

  • Important information you will find on CSUCI’s Financial Aid website:


    • FAFSA = Federal Application for Student Aid
    • It is advised that every student should fill out the FAFSA. The FAFSA is required for any student — undergraduate and graduate — who wants to receive federal or state financial aid, and some scholarships (since some scholarships are need-based).
    • The FAFSA must be completed by the due date every year.
    • It is important to complete the FAFSA early, because if there is a mistake on the application and it is received late, the student will be dropped from their classes for lack of payment.
