State University Grant Program

The State University Grant (SUG) program provides need-based awards to eligible undergraduate and graduate/postbaccalaureate students who are California residents or otherwise determined as eligible (i.e. Dream). Systemwide, the priority is to award a SUG at least equal to the amount of the State University Fee ($5,472 for undergraduates, $6,348 for students in teaching credential programs, and $6,738 for graduate and postbaccalaureate students for 2013-2014) to eligible students who apply for financial by March 2, who have an expected family contribution (EFC) of $4,000 or less, and who are not receiving a Cal Grant or other award designated to cover fees. State University grant eligibility is also affected by the number of units a student has earned. Undergraduates in most programs may receive SUG for up to 150 units. Transfer students are reviewed for eligibility based on the number of units transferred. Graduate and credential students are also limited based on their program length. Each campus has established local awarding policies and priorities for these funds.
