Financial Aid for Online and Professional Studies Students
OPS students are working adults whose college education was interrupted for one reason
or another and who are returning to earn undergraduate degrees at the main campus,
often after many years away from an academic environment. Students are typically comprised
of highly motivated learners who are pursuing their educations while advancing ongoing
careers, including registered nurses attending CBU in order to complete their undergraduate
nursing education. California Baptist University believes strongly in educating students
and in providing them with the financial aid that many of them so badly need and desire.
Returning to college after a prolonged absence is an inspiring endeavor and certainly no easy task for many of these students. In some ways, OPS students represent the best that the community has to offer: people leading productive lives while striving to further their education, or those who have overcome significant obstacles to return to college. In both instances, the financial aid available is a welcome encouragement for this important step.
