personalized Financial Aid Advisement


Project Rebound provides personalized financial aid advisement to prospective, matriculated, and enrolled students to assist them in securing the Federal Pell and State University Grants, as well as other public and private grants, scholarships, and loans for which they are eligible. The estimated financial aid (assuming zero expected family contribution) for a full-time CSUF Rebound student, based on the rates for AY2015-16, includes $11,000 a year in state and federal grants (i.e., financial aid that the student does not have to pay back). Individual students may also be eligible for additional aid in the form of scholarships (i.e., another form of financial aid that the student does not have to pay back), federal work-study (i.e., a federal employment program for students), and student loans (i.e., financial aid that the student does have to pay back).
