Welcome to the Cuesta College Financial Aid Office!

Not sure how to start the financial aid process? Take our online orientation module to learn what kinds of financial aid are available to you and how to apply for them at Cuesta! (También disponible en español)


 

 
Want to discuss your financial aid with us via telephone? Want a family member or friend to talk to us on your behalf? You need to fill out a FERPA authorization form and submit it to our office in person or by e-mail from your myCuesta email address. 
 
The "freeze date" for Spring 2015 was March 10, 2015.  The amount of Pell that you will receive is calculated on the number of credits in which you are enrolled on the freeze date. Be aware that any Spring classes that you sign up for after this date will not make you eligible for additional financial aid! 
 
Upcoming freeze dates: July 7, 2015 (Summer), October 20, 2015 (Fall), March 22, 2016 (Spring)
 
Need help completing the steps to get the Cuesta Promise?  We are here to help! Attend one of the Cuesta Promise Workshops we will be holding twice a month from now until July.
