All students should begin by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online or the California Dream Act application. You may apply once a year.

Financial Aid News

Board of Governor’s Fee Waiver (CCP Grant) Policy

Students who do not meet academic standing and academic progress standards for two consecutive terms will lose eligibility for the CCP Grant. This is based on new state regulations. Once you’ve qualified for the CCP Grant, it is important to ensure that you are meeting the academic and progress standards in order to avoid losing the fee waiver.

Students must:
• Maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0
• Successfully complete at least 50 percent of all units attempted

If a student is placed on academic or progress probation for two consecutive primary terms, they will lose eligibility for the CCP Grant and enrollment priority if their GPA falls below cumulative 2.0 for two consecutive primary terms.


New Federal Student Aid ID

The Federal Student Aid ID now consists of a username and password rather than the previous PIN number. This information is important because you’ll need it to your identity to access your federal student aid information. Learn more about creating a Federal Student Aid ID. 

Student Success Completion Grant (SSCG)

Students are now eligible for the Student Success Completion Grant (SSCG) - a California Community College financial aid program for students who receive a Cal Grant B or Cal Grant C and are enrolled at least full time (12+ units). The SSCG grant will provide students with additional financial aid assistance and encourage successful on-time completion. The total award amount may vary, if a student is enrolled in 12-14.99 units for a term or 15 units or more per term.


Application Calendar

October 1: Complete the FAFSA/Dream Application for next fall (summer semester for the CCP Grant).
