Updating finicial aid
All students must apply or reapply yearly for Financial Aid.
To ensure aid is processed on time, students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) prior to March 1st, the FIU priority deadline date. Financial Aid can be either gift aid or self-help aid.
If you want to request a program, email Gretchen Ryan.
Financial aid information can now temporarily be verified from a signed copy of federal tax returns instead of a tax transcript.
March 2, 2017, is the priority deadline for submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream application for all California State University (CSU) Channel Islands (CI) students attending Fall 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit a FAFSA as early as October 1 every year.
