Financial Aid and Fees
Get the Financial Help You Need
We're here to assist you with completion of the FAFSA or CADAA, process verification documents, answer questions related to federal and state financial aid programs, interpret policies related to student eligibility, and support students' efficient use of aid resources.
Money shouldn't get in the way of getting a college education. The Financial Aid Office is here to help you get the financial support you need to pay your tuition and fees and afford college.
Apply for Financial Aid
Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADAA), and we will help you identify the aid for which you are eligible. The FAFSA is for US citizens and permanent residents, while the CADAA is for students who are not US citizens, permanent residents, or eligible non-citizens.
Make sure you are aware of the financial aid deadlines for each semester.
