The recent system change in how to obtain financial aid has made a few things difficult for me to discern correctly on how I feel about the financial aid process at school.
It's stupid: FA is disbursed after fees due-date!
Getting the financial aid was not the hard part, it was talking to the Financial Aid office that was. With the influx of students to all state schools in California, the schools simply cannot help every kid who needs help. People have been put on hold for 3+ hours just trying to figure out if they were going to get the money they deserved and so desperately needed. To add on to that the SFSU website is not helpful when it comes to finical aid, it does not give you the most important step in completing your finical aid.
Sometimes the financial aid is of no use and they take a long time to pick up phone calls. You have better chances walking into student services and asking for help, and bring any required documents that might help. APPLY EARLY, if you apply early you might receive emails from the school saying that they require addition information that will probably extend the fafsa due date, so keep that in mind
Submit paper work before due date
Sorry, there are no reviews.
