Financial Aid Workshops

Need help completing the 2017-2018 FAFSA/DREAM application (for Summer 2017, Fall 2017 Spring 2018), or do you need assistance with Financial Aid Self Service, Chafee Grants, IRS Data Retrieval or requesting Transcripts, create FSA ID, plan on attending one of our workshops. The Financial Aid staff will assist you. Workshops are currently scheduled at the Chaffey College Rancho, Chino and Fontana campuses for the following dates and times. No appointment is needed.

For FAFSA/Dream workshops please bring:

  • Student's & Parent's FSA ID made up of a username and password. This is used to sign you FAFSA electronically.
  • Student’s 2015 Federal Income Tax return  and W2s(dependent students only)  
  • Parents’  2015 Federal Income Tax return  and W2s
  • Parents’ social security number, birth date, marital status and date (dependent students only, documentation is not required)
  • Amounts of any additional income received such as child support, social security, welfare benefits, etc.
  • Don’t forget your student ID card or valid photo ID

If you do not have a copy of the federal tax forms, you may request a Tax Return Transcript from the IRS by calling 1-800-908-9946 or by visiting their website at

Changes to the FAFSA Process for 2017–18

SUBMIT A FAFSA EARLIER: Students will be able to submit a 2017–18 FAFSA as early as Oct. 1, 2016, rather than beginning on Jan. 1, 2017. The earlier submission date will be a permanent change, enabling students to complete and submit their FAFSAs as early as October 1 every year. (There is NO CHANGE to the 2016–17 schedule. The 2016–17 FAFSA became available Jan. 1, 2016.)

USE EARLIER INCOME AND TAX INFORMATION: Beginning with the 2017–18 FAFSA, students will be required to report income and tax information from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2017–18 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2015 income and tax information, rather than their 2016 income and tax information.

Here’s a summary of key dates for submitting the FAFSA depending on when you plan to go to school:

JULY 1, 2015 – JUNE 30, 2016 2015–16 JANUARY 1, 2015 – JUNE 30, 2016 2014
JULY 1, 2016 – JUNE 30, 2017 2016–17 JANUARY 1, 2016 – JUNE 30, 2017 2015
