FINANCIAL AID OFFICE COVID-19 UPDATE

We understand that your family may be suffering financially from the Covid-19 economic shutdown or other outside factors (job loss, loss of hours/income, extensive medical expenses, death in the family, private school tuition, or another extenuating circumstance). If your current financial circumstance differs greatly from what is shown on the FAFSA, we invite you to complete the form below to see if you qualify for a Special Circumstance Petition (undergraduate students only, graduate and doctoral students are not eligible):

Click here to complete the Special Circumstance Petition Request Form

For all other inquiries, you may contact our office by email at FinAid@calbaptist.edu. If you need to contact your counselor directly, you can email them directly for the quickest response, or you may schedule a phone or video appointment!

We thank you for your understanding during this unique time, and we are happy to assist you as best as we can.

 

You and your family may be eligible for federal, state, or local assistance and we want to make sure you have the tools and information necessary to access it! Please visit the Financial Fitness page for more guidance.

 

If you would like to speak with a counselor to review your financial aid offer, ask questions about scholarships, grants, and loans, or you need help understanding the financial aid process, please find your counselor below and click the link to make a phone or video appointment. For OPS students, please contact your one-stop directly, or email FinAidOPS@calbaptist.edu.

At California Baptist University Financial Aid Administrators are dedicated to excellence in the service provided for students.  It is the staff's common goal to assist students in making informed decisions regarding their financial needs while pursuing their college education.

 

It is our commitment to:

Facilitate students in the pursuit of their purpose:   By providing financial assistance, we open doors for many students who would otherwise be unable to achieve their educational goals.

Pursue excellence in our field:   We dedicate ourselves to integrity within our profession, striving to adhere to all federal, state, and university regulations.   We commit to the constant bettering of ourselves through training so as to work to the very best of our ability.
 
Honor God with our actions and our words:   In both our professional and personal life, we strive to bring honor to God. We are mindful of the words we speak, the actions that we take and the attitudes we put forth. We recognize that we are His reflection to the world.
