EOP | Verification


Why does CSULA EOP require financial documents?

One of the initial criteria to be considered for EOP at CSULA is to meet the low income guidelines.
A financial verification form and document(s) showing income sources and/or eligibility for government assistance (such as a statement of state or county benefits, SSI, social security benefits, food stamps, etc.) are required in order to enable us to determine whether or not a student meets these low income guidelines. Students who do not submit these required documents by the March 02, 2014 deadline will not be considered for EOP.

What will CSULA EOP accept for a financial document?

Please see below for information regarding acceptable documents.

The first page of the 1040 federal tax return will look something like this.
