What is a Conditional Offer?

In some cases, the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office may require additional information from you before we can make an official offer of financial aid. Until we receive and review that additional information, you will have “conditional awards” in the My Finances section of CalCentral. This conditional offer is an estimate of your financial aid eligibility and is subject to change. You will be notified of your conditional award status in CalCentral.

You may receive conditional awards for the following reasons:

You may receive a conditional award if you have been selected for a review process called verification. You will find more information in CalCentral. Your financial aid awards will remain conditional, and subject to change, until the verification process is completed.

If you have not been selected for verification, and the income information provided on the 2017-18 FAFSA or Dream Act Application is based on a completed tax return, you will see a finalized offer of aid sometime during the summer.  Please monitor CalCentral for updates.
