If you will be receiving other sources of funding that are not included on your award summary, you must notify us in writing of the source and amount of each award (i.e., departmental or outside scholarships or a fee waiver). We will issue you a revised electronic notice if other awards need to be adjusted based on this new information.
You may complete and submit a FAN Change Form to notify us of any other sources of funding you will be receiving for the academic year.
Financial aid funds are first applied toward any outstanding University charges. Any excess amounts are then refunded to you via check mailing to your mailing address on record with the University or via Direct Deposit.
By enrolling in Eagle Express Direct Deposit, you can expedite the process for receiving any refunds for which you are eligible.

These steps will only need to be completed the first time you borrow a Direct Stafford Loan at CSULA. You will not need to recomplete these items for subsequent years.
Federal Regulations require that you complete student loan counseling prior to receiving a federal student loan for the first time at CSULA. The counseling will provide critical information about the student loan programs and delivery of funds. After completing the online session, we recommend printing out a copy of the student loan borrower's Rights & Responsibilities Checklist for your records.
