Middle Class Scholarship

Students who have been notified by the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) that they are eligible for a Middle Class Scholarship (MCS) should be aware that MCS will be awarded and disbursed by October 16, 2018. The delay is to allow CSUMB to review MCS recipient’s eligibility for other grant and scholarship programs that may be more beneficial to them.

Fall 2018 Financial Aid Disbursements

Welcome! The first day of classes for the Fall 2018 term is August 27, 2018. Disbursements of Financial Aid for the Fall 2018 term will begin on August 31, 2018. Disbursements will occur daily for the first two weeks of school and will occur every Wednesday thereafter. It will take 24 to 48 hours for financial aid disbursements to post to your student account in OASIS.

If you have more financial aid than "charges due" for the term, you will receive a refund. If you enroll in direct deposit, you will get your refund within 2 working days from the day the refund posts to your student account (timing may vary depending on your banks processing timelines). Please remember to confirm the funds are received in your bank account. If you are not enrolled in direct deposit, your check will be mailed to you starting the end of the second week of classes.

Instructions to enroll in direct deposit.

If your financial aid is delayed and you need to purchase books you can charge up to $500 in educational related purchases from the CSUMB bookstore from August 20 until September 10, 2018. To find out more about the student charge account go to the bookstore website.
