Welcome to Financial Aid
On behalf of Yuba College we are requesting your help with an important project. As part of a larger program to evaluate the quality of the services provided to students, we are conducting a survey of current students to ask about their experiences at the College. The data collected will provide useful information to the financial aid department and the college. To assure confidentiality, please do not enter any identifying information into any of the text responses on the survey.
To complete the survey online, please click on the below link:
As a token of our appreciation for your participation in this important study, please print the page acknowledging completion of the survey, add your name, student ID and phone number, and take it to your financial aid office to be entered into a raffle for a meal voucher at Flavors or Aromas.
Thank you in advance for your participation in this important project.

Pay to Stay in your classes!
Beginning Spring 2012, students who have not completed their fee payment arrangements after (10) ten days from the time of their registration will be dropped from their classes for non-payment of course fees. However, you may qualify for an enrollment fee waiver (BOGW) to help cover the cost of your CA Resident enrollment fees.
Board of Governor’s Fee Waiver (BOG)
Submit the FAFSA NOW to see if you qualify for a fee waiver
and additional grants!
(processing time for BOGW is 1-2 weeks and additional grants 4-6 weeks)
Please Note: The BOGW waives ONLY CA Resident Enrollment Fees.
Other course related fees, such as lab or materials fees,
must be paid by the student.
