University description (as per official university website)
South Baylo University was established in 1977 in the City of Los Angeles as a post-secondary education institution. The University encompassed two schools: the School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and the School of Business Administration. The University moved to Garden Grove, California in the Spring 1982 as a nonprofit, public-benefit corporation and in the Fall 1994, moved again to its present location in Anaheim, California. Then in 1997, the schools separated and each became an independent school. As a free standing, accredited School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, SBU continued to grow and has become one of the largest and prestigious AOM schools in the USA.
As a leader in Asian Medicine, SBU provides student centered education and training based upon the core value of HARMONY. Harmony of bodily Functions, Harmony of Mind and Body, and Harmony of Life and Nature are the very foundation of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.
The purpose of Financial Aid is to assist students in paying for educational costs. The Financial Aid Office is available to help students secure funds through a variety of aid programs available to assist students to pay for their education.
These aid programs include grant, loan, scholarship, and work-study program. Grants and scholarships are financial awards the student does not need to pay back. Loans are borrowed funds students must repay. The Work-study program is an opportunity to earn money to pay for part of the student's educational expenses.
Upon enrolling in the University, students may be eligible to apply for the following types of Financial Aid programs: Federal Pell Grant (PELL), Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG), Federal Stafford Loan (Stafford), Federal Work Study (FW-S), Federal Plus Loan (PLUS), Federal Unsubsidized Loan, and CAL State Grants.
Students must maintain a satisfactory academic record in order to remain eligible for Financial Aid. More detailed information can be found in the Financial Aid Handbook. Check with the Financial Aid Officer for such information before you enroll. No financial aid is available for academic work beyond the University's requirements for graduation.
The amount of financial aid a student is entitled to receive depends on financial need. Financial need is the difference between the cost of education and the student's expected family contribution (EFC) as determined by the formula established by the Department of Education. Costs include tuition, non-refundable fees, books, supplies, room and board. The sum of these costs constitutes the educational budget.
