Extended Learning offers a variety of continuing education courses, academic credit certificates, and professional development certificates to prepare you for career advancement, career change, or personal growth. Some Extended Learning programs are financial aid eligible.
Federal Work-Study on your Financial Aid Award means you are eligible to be paid Work-study funds if you get a job on campus. Work-study is not a grant or a loan, nor is it a guarantee of a job. The main advantage of Work-Study employment is that your Work-Study earnings do not count against you as a financial resource on your FAFSA.
The Graduate College of Education at SFSU offers a variety of credential and degree options for students. Financial assistance is different for Credential students as opposed to Master's degree students. Credential students are considered 5th year undergraduate students for financial aid purposes. Students dually enrolled in the credential and Master's programs are considered graduate students.
The Post-Bac Programs are intended for students that have already earned a bachelor's degree and wish to apply to health professional schools. Students seeking financial aid are only able to receive federal financial aid for one year (three continuous semesters), starting when the student joins the program. Thereafter, students can still get financial aid through private loans and scholarships.
