Welcome to Sacramento State’s Financial Aid and Scholarships Office!

Congratulations on your decision to pursue a college education.  Our Student Services staff is available to assist you with your financial aid as well as answer many of your general questions as you navigate the administrative side of your college experience.  We recognize that a college education is a large investment. Our Student Services Team makes every effort to assist you along the way.   

Our mission to our students is to help students and in many cases their families to search for, apply, receive and maintain eligibility for various types of financial aid. Financial aid education is offered through individual counseling, campus marketing activities and group presentations. Staff also undertakes research and resolution of individual student issues. The office strives to provide timely and accurate financial aid processing that is in full compliance with all federal, state and university regulations.

Please take a few moments to explore our site for a complete description of our financial aid programs, and processes.  Our experienced staff is available year round to assist you.   

We look forward to working with you and helping you “Redefine the Possible”!
