National Student Exchange - Non-Cal Poly Students
Students from other NSE schools who plan to attend at least one quarter at Cal Poly may be eligible for funding. Cal Poly is the host school and the original school is the home school.
Schools with Plan A
Cal Poly funds eligible students who have filed the FAFSA. Fees are paid to Cal Poly. Please note:
- Your name must appear on the NSE approved list for incoming Plan A from the IEP office.
- You will not be charged non-resident fees but you are not eligible for California state aid. Registration fees and other university obligations will be deducted from your aid before a check is disbursed. Cal Poly will bill you if your aid does not cover all of your registration fees or other university obligations. You may also sign up for direct deposit with the Student Accounts Office by downloading the Direct Deposit form.
- The budget used is the Cal Poly "off-campus" budget.
- Some schools insist on funding their own Outgoing Plan A students and students are advised to check with the home campus.
Schools with Plan B
Cal Poly does not fund. The student applies for aid from
the home school and pays fees to the home school. Student's home school
will send financial aid to be disbursed at Cal Poly and students should
contact the home school for more information.
Please note: The priority filing date for the FAFSA in California is March 2 for the following academic year.
