How to apply for a loan

Applying for a private loan is a simple process, but may vary by lender. Arrangements for any private student loan must be made prior to registration in EIP classes.

To register for classes, the full payment of the class fee is due at the time of registration. Below you will find the steps for applying for a private loan and enrolling in classes with your loan.


  1. Apply for a private loan with a lender of your choice, using CSUF’s school code: #001137
  2. Notify Extension and International Programs of your approved private loan by contacting us.
  3. Extension and International Programs will certify your loan with the lender. Please note that EIP is only able to certify the loan relating to the total estimated cost of the tuition, and loan certification is not guaranteed as EIP must accept the loan terms and conditions first.
  4. Enroll in your classes once the first three steps above are completed.
  5. Lender will disburse the funds and CSUF will post the funds to your account.
  6. Pay remaining balance if there is any unpaid balance after the loan funds are disbursed.

Please note that any overpayment from the loan will be disbursed to you by check.
