News & Important Dates

Admitted Students for Fall 2020: Preliminary Aid Packages Now Being Released (weekly)

Preliminary Aid Packages are now available to view via BroncoDirect for Fall 2020 admitted students.  If you have not received a Preliminary Aid Package, check your aid application and confirm that you listed Cal Poly Pomona (School Code 001144).

Current CPP Students: Summer Aid Packaging Now Scheduled to Begin April 20, 2020

Initial Summer Aid packages will be based on remaining Federal Student Aid eligibility only (Federal Pell Grant and/or Direct Student Loans).  You must be enrolled at least half-time for Summer in order to be packaged with Summer aid.

Current CPP Students: Fall 2020 Aid Packaging Scheduled to Begin mid-June

Packaging for Current students for the 2020 – 2021 academic year has been moved to June - after the Spring Fully Graded Date & Satisfactory Academic Progress Review has occurred.  This change in timing ensures that students will receive an aid package for the upcoming year that more accurately reflects their eligibility – and minimizes the need for last-minute changes or cancellations of aid. 

You can still register for Fall classes as scheduled, as the tuition payment due date is not until the end of July.

Income Appeals for 2020 – 2021: Available early June

We understand that there are a variety of factors, including the current COVID-19 situation, that potentially impact a student & family's available income & resources for the upcoming 2020 – 2021 academic year.  Our appeal form for these types of requests will be available on our Forms page beginning in June.

Parent and Graduate PLUS Loans for 2020 – 2021: Available early June

Applications for the Federal Direct PLUS Loan (Parent and Graduate) will be available on our Forms page beginning in June.
