Can I afford to attend CSUDH?

Yes! Your CSU Dominguez Hills education is a smart investment in your future. And we’re making sure it is also affordable. In fact, CSUDH will award more than $65 million in grants and scholarships to students in the coming year.

We encourage you to explore our many flexible financial aid and scholarship options designed to make your CSU Dominguez Hills education even more affordable. For fall, you can apply for financial aid beginning on January 1, by filing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). File your FAFSA before March 2, for priority processing.

To reduce possible mistakes and streamline the financial aid application process, students and parents may be eligible to use the IRS Data Retrieval process. This means when you fill out your FAFSA you may be eligible to automatically transfer your federal tax information directly from the IRS into your FAFSA! To use this feature, we strongly encourage you and your parents to file your federal tax returns as early as possible before completing the FAFSA.
