Important Notice to Applicants
The California State University system and the University of California
system do not consider enrollment in their Extended Education/Continuing
Education/University Extension Programs to be the equivalent as
enrollment in their main campuses due to different admission requirements
and different financial aid options. Therefore, enrollment in the Extended
Education/Continuing Education/University Extension Programs does not
qualify for the CNG EAAP.
Service members may receive CNG EAAP benefits for online classes or other
programs only when the institution providing the instruction is located
in California and participates in the Cal Grant program.
Several institutions on the following list are eligible institutions
only if the participant is enrolled at the California campus. These
institutions have online-only programs which are administered outside
the State of California. Enrollment in these online-only programs
will result in your not being awarded the CNG EAAP. This list is not

eligible for the preceding academic year. Click here for more information.
