The Financial Aid Office is committed to helping students and families navigate the financial process. We have dedicated staff ready to help with financial assistance, which is part of the admission process.
Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA) The
Free Application for Federal Aid, known as the FAFSA, determines a student's eligibility for need-based federal financial aid for college based on their financial situation. Federal financial aid may include federal grants, scholarships, work-study, and loans. Also, the FAFSA is used to award State and Institutional grants and scholarships.
California Dream Act (must have been granted AB 540) The California Dream Act is used to award students that have been granted AB 540 state and institutional grants and scholarships. Students must have an AB 540 Exemption affidavit on file with the campus admissions office and remain classified as nonresidents.
