    If you are a CSUSB student enrolled in a degree program you may qualify for federal financial aid. For a list of financial aid opportunities based on degree program,
    see Financial Aid Fact Sheet.


  2. Private Student Loans/Alternative Loans

    College of Extended Learning (CEL) Certificate Programs and Courses are eligible for private loans. The choice of a lender and guarantor is a decision and responsibility you must take as the borrower. CEL does not endorse or have an affiliation with any lender. Please contact your financial institution for further information about their private student loan program.

    CEL Private Student Loan Guidelines

    Arrangements for any student private loan must be made prior to registration in CEL courses or certificates. Full payment of class fee is due at the time of registration. Loan certification is not a guarantee, and terms and conditions must be accepted by CEL.

    Steps:

    • Apply for a Private loan with a lender of your choice.
    • Students will need to notify CEL of their approved private loan. Please call the CEL office at (909) 537-5976.
    • CEL will certify the student's loan with the lender. Please note that CEL is only able to certify the loan relating to the total estimated cost of the tuition.
    • Students will be allowed to enroll in their classes as long as the first 3 steps above are completed.
    • Lender will disburse the funds to the school and the school will post the funds to the student's account.
    • Any overpayment from the loan will be disbursed to the student by check. Any unpaid balance after the loan funds are disbursed will be due immediately, to be paid by the student.
