Financial Aid in Your Virtual Spaces

Financial Aid Comes to You

In addition to connecting with our advisors and counselors through Cal Student Central, you can also connect with our financial aid counselors in many affinity spaces.

It was great to be able to serve you this year!  We will resume advising in these affinity spaces in the fall of 2021. In the meantime, you can reach us all year long by visiting Cal Student Central
