Financial Aid


Financial aid is money available to assist students with the costs of attending college. Financial aid comes from the federal government, state government, the College, and from private sources in the form of scholarships. Grants and scholarships are assistance you don't have to pay back. Federal Work-Study allows you to work and earn money to help pay for school. Loans are borrowed money that you must repay with interest.

Our Financial Aid office can help you determine how to qualify and receive financial assistance in the form of Pell Grants, Cal Grants, and the Board of Governor's Fee Waiver (BOGFW).  Please visit the Financial Aid web pages to learn more about applying for and receiving financial aid, or contact the Financial Aid office at (530) 895-2311.
