PAYMENT OPTIONS

  • By Mail: You can mail your check to:

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR FINANCIAL AID RECIPIENTS
If you are receiving financial aid, please be aware that once your financial aid posts to your CalCentral account, it may pay off the emergency loan and the application fee before the due date. There is no guarantee that this will happen, however, and financial aid may not pay any of it. It is your responsibility to monitor your account activity through My Finances on CalCentral.

For more information about emergency loans, please see the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office website.
