Financial Aid may be available for students pursuing a first bachelor’s or master’s degree. Additional information about Financial Aid is available through Sacramento State’s Financial Aid & Scholarship Office.
Once you have completed the FAFSA watch your My Sac State “Student Center To Do List” for additional required forms and documents.
Alternative (Private) Loans
Alternative (Private) Loans are credit based loans available through banking institutions and not backed by the government. These loans may be appropriate for students who do not qualify for federally guaranteed subsidized, unsubsidized and parent PLUS loans.
Students should always exhaust all of their federal financial aid eligibility options, including loans. In most cases, you may need to meet with a financial aid counselor to review other aid options. Fees and interest rates can be based on your credit score — therefore, you are encouraged to shop different lenders for the best available option. Sacramento State does not endorse or recommend private lending programs.
