Financial questions?

Studying at CSUF is very affordable, and we offer many financial aid options for U.S. citizens. Make sure that you complete the FAFSA, preferably by February, to have access to the most financial aid options.  

The School of Music also offers scholarships to students beginning their study in the Fall semester. Scholarships range from modest sums for one or two semesters to full fees for four years. While excellence in performance, as demonstrated in the audition, is the primary criterion for all scholarships, a fine academic record is also influential in the decision-making process.
