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.
