At CSU-Pueblo we are committed to helping students explore financing options to help them achieve their educational goals. Approximately 80 percent of our students receive some type of assistance.  We hope that you find our website (along with your PAWS account) helpful in answering any questions you may have about financial aid or the financial aid process.  If you still have questions, you can also speak to someone directly during normal business hours Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm - no appointment is necessary. 

SALTCSU-Pueblo has teamed with American Student Assistance to bring the SALT program to campus.  SALT is free for our students & alumni and provides financial literacy modules, scholarship searches, internship & job searches, and discounts from partner companies.  Plus once registered, you can manage your student loans all in one place (see your payment and repayment plan options) and have access to expert student loan counselors!
