California Student Aid Commission

California Student Aid Commission

Since its creation by the Legislature, in 1955, the Commission has continued to operate as the principal state agency responsible for administering financial aid programs for students attending public and private universities, colleges, and vocational schools in California. The Commission has never wavered from its central mission to make education beyond high school financially accessible to all Californians.

The Commission provides financial aid policy analysis and leadership, in partnership with California’s colleges, universities, financial institutions, and financial aid associations.

The Commission consists of 15 appointed members. Eleven of the commissioners are appointed by the Governor and represent students, segments of the State’s higher education community, and the general public. The Chair of the Senate Rules Committee and the Speaker of the Assembly each appoint two members.
