A waiting list application form must be completed and returned to the Center Office, along with a $10 application fee. An application fee is not required from students eligible for subsidized childcare. The application fee is not refundable and is not applied toward any other fees.

Since we offer flexible scheduling we never know what hours might be available. We recommend you turn in a waiting list application and then we can call you if any open spots (might be part-time) become available. You can apply anytime to be placed on the waiting list, even when you're pregnant.

Do you offer financial aid?

A state-subsidized and federal (CCAMPIS) financial assistance program is available to low-income students during the academic year. CSULB undergraduate and credential student parents with the lowest income, adjusted for family size, will have priority.

This subsidized program serves a limited number of families. To apply, parents must provide proof of income documentation and complete a Request for Subsidized Childcare form.
