Financial Aid is not available for Open University.
A sponsored student is one whose tuition will be paid by a third party, such as an employer, military organization, vocational rehabilitation department, municipality, or any other agency, body, board or business entity.
In order to be considered a sponsored student, your sponsor must submit a letter of authorization to the Tseng College prior to registration. Upon approval, CSUN will invoice the sponsoring organization directly for your tuition fees; you will not have to pay at the time of registration.
Please read instructions here: Third Party Sponsorships.
