Your Cal U education is one of the most important investments you and your family will ever make, but paying for college often seems overwhelming. The Financial Aid Office at California University of Pennsylvania is here to help. More than 90% of all Cal U students receive financial aid, usually in some combination of loans, grants, scholarships and work-study jobs. Every student who applies to Cal U is given careful consideration, and the University determines the amount and type of financial aid assistance you need based on federal, state and institutional guidelines. The goal of our office is to ensure that courteous, timely and accurate financial aid services are delivered to all students seeking assistance.
