How to Apply for Financial Aid

CSUS uses the School and Student Services (SSS) to process and analyze all financial aid applications. Using the SSS’s award recommendation as a starting point, we reevaluate every application to consider each family's circumstance.

In order for us to evaluate your family’s financial situation, you will need to complete the SSS application, submit tax forms and sign a tax request form (located on the SSS website).

Please note: for parents who are divorced or separated, each parent needs to fill out a separate SSS application and send their tax returns and tax request form to the SSS.

Helpful Resources
We will offer two financial aid information sessions in the winter, in which we discuss our financial aid program and walk through a typical SSS application. If you did not attend one of the sessions, please view the webinars below.

In addition, the SSS has posted many brief webinars on how to complete certain parts of the application. Take a look at this link. Of course, you are also welcome to contact Ayaka Okawa at for assistance.
