Exciting Program Additions

  • TEACH Grant – The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education Grant Program is a non-need based grant program available for selected post baccalaureate students who are enrolled in an eligible program. They will also need to agree to teach in a high-need field, at a low-income elementary or secondary school as a highly qualified teacher for at least four years within eight years of completing the program for which the TEACH Grant is awarded.
  • California Dream Loan – A low interest loan designated for undocumented AB 540 undergraduate students who are enrolled at University of California or California State University campuses. Loan amounts range up to $2,000 for this academic year at Cal Poly Pomona with an interest rate of 4.29 percent. Upon graduation, borrowers must begin repaying their loan after a six-month grace period.
  • Undocumented Students – We have a liaison in our department who is part of the newly developed campus committee, The Undocumented Student Support Advocacy Committee, created to help support this population of students through the process from admissions to graduation and anything in between.

Serving Those Who Served Our Country

  • Number of veterans served:   427
  • Types of service provided
    • Dedicated liaison provided to the Veterans Office to work closely with our veterans to help them through the process of financial aid.
    • Outreach regarding financial aid and scholarships

New Technology Helping Us Help You

  • OnBase, a financial aid software system, enables our office to process work faster and more efficiently. It also helps our office to significantly decrease document processing time, increase staff productivity and improve input  storage and retrieval through a simple and flexible user interface. This all allows for faster and more efficient notification of financial aid awards.
