The CSU MBA tuition grant is funded from a percentage of CSUB MBA student tuition fee revenues. The maximum MBA tuition fee grant for a student shall not exceed the amount of the additional Graduate Professional Business Tuition assessed for the term. Funds are limited and awarded, beginning with the MBA students who have the lowest EFC, until exhausted.

To be considered for a CSU MBA tuition fee grant, graduate students must:

  • be admitted and enrolled in the MBA program;
  • be enrolled in MBA courses assessed the additional MBA per unit fee;
  • be a California resident;
  • have a valid Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file;
  • have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of no greater than sixty percent (60%) of the standard academic year cost of attendance for MBA students residing off-campus;
  • have demonstrated financial need;
  • maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress


Based on these criteria, and available funding, the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships identifies eligible candidates after Census Date each term, with priority being given to those students who submitted their FAFSA on or before March 2 and have the lowest EFCs. Recipients are notified by e-mail.
