Financial Aid

Welcome to Financial Aid

Our goal is to assist you in bridging the gap between your own resources and the cost of attending college. We offer assistance with completing applications and providing information about the requirements of the various financial aid programs. Financial aid consists of federal grants, work study, state grants, fee waivers, and outside scholarships.

Pay to Stay in your classes!

Students who have not completed their fee payment arrangements after (10) ten days from the time of their registration will be subject to being dropped from their classes for non-payment of course fees. However, you may qualify for an enrollment fee waiver (California College Promise Grant – CCPG) to help cover the cost of your CA Resident enrollment fees. Apply here for CCPG Apply for financial aid by submitting your FAFSA NOW to see if you qualify for a fee waiver and additional grants! (processing time for CCPG is 1-2 weeks and additional grants 4-6 weeks) Please Note: The CCPG waives ONLY CA Resident Enrollment Fees. Other course related fees, such as lab or materials fees, must be paid by the student.
Don’t assume you won’t qualify – APPLY NOW!


FINANCIAL AID ALERT – CC Promise Grant Changes

Beginning the 2018-2019 aid year, the Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOG) will be called the California College Promise Grant. Attention Students: Don’t lose your California College Promise Grant! The California College Promise Grant is now based on minimum GPA and course completion standards! (W’s/NP’s) Starting Fall 2016 semester, your grades will be used to determine CC Promise Grant. Due to a change in state law, students will need to sustain a GPA of 2.0 or higher and complete 50% of coursework to maintain CC Promise Grant eligibility. If your GPA falls below a 2.0 and/or cumulative course completion is less than 50% for two consecutive primary terms (fall/spring), you may lose your CC Promise Grant.

Please visit the Financial Aid or Counseling Office to find out more about how you can keep your education on track. You can also make an appointment to see a counselor by calling: 530-661-5703 or by scheduling an appointment online through WebAdvisor.
