If you are interested in receiving financial aid during your time at CDSP, please review these steps:

1. Visit FAFSA and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The school code for CDSP is G01165. The FAFSA is required each year for all students wishing to be considered for any type of financial aid, whether federal or institutional (i.e., from CDSP).

2. Also complete the CDSP Domestic Application for Financial Aid (application for new students; application for returning students).

3. Submit any outstanding items to complete your application for admission to CDSP. Your eligibility for aid is finalized only after your application for admission has been processed. The priority deadline for admission applications and financial aid applications is March 15. See the Applications page for more information about how to apply. Note that to be eligible for financial aid, students must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 units per semester and must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress. See pages 49-50 and 53-57 of the Academic Handbook for more information about the school's Satisfactory Academic Progress and Financial Aid policies.


**International Students should skip the FAFSA and submit the CDSP International Application for Financial Aid instead of the Domestic application linked above.**
