The Financial Aid Office is committed to assisting students who are looking to continue their education but lack the financial resources. We recognize that every student may have unique circumstances that should be considered. Every application is carefully analyzed with complete confidentiality to protect your personal financial information.
On a yearly basis, all financial aid applicants must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available and can be filed on the internet www.fafsa.gov.
A current Admissions Application to the College must be on file before we can process your FAFSA application. Complete the application using your personal information as it appears on your Social Security card. You must provide your Social Security number in the application or our office will not be able to process your financial aid.
State law requires that students attending the college pay an enrollment fee. Students enrolled in credit classes are currently required to pay $46 per unit. The college offers the Board of Governors Waiver BOGW online application, (or a print and return form) a state-funded program which waives the enrollment fee for all eligible students.
Effective with the 2015-2016 school year, you must apply for a Board of Governors Fee Waiver using the FAFSA or California DREAM Act application.
Apply for financial aid as soon as possible after January 1.
Application materials are available at the Financial Aid Office.
You may now file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.gov
