Take a look at our GETanswers portal for fast answers. GETanswers provides short videos to answer basic Financial Aid questions 24/7.  


If you plan to live on campus and are unsure if your Financial Aid Award will cover your housing costs, we recommend you visit the Housing & Residence Life Website for housing and meal costs.  Once you determine the cost of housing and meals, refer to your GET Account to determine if you qualified for sufficient Financial Aid to cover your housing and meals. 

You can also estimate your costs via the Cal State LA Net Price Calculator. The Net Price Calculator is intended to estimate costs for students.  All awards produced by this calculator are estimated. If you provide inaccurate information, the result will be inaccurate.
