The CSUSM Financial Aid Office (FAO) provides information through various channels, including publications such as the university's financial aid brochure, FAO Web sites, MyCSUSM student portal, e-mails and catalogs (electronic and print). The CSUSM FAO e-mails a variety of important information to the student's primary e-mail address. The FAO will use this as the primary means for contacting students. The FAO uses the MyCSUSM portal page, main FAO Website and FAQ Web site to notify students of any targeted or general announcements. Students may find other consumer information topics throughout the CSUSM Website.
