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.

Registering for classes?  Avoid getting dropped for non-payment!

Beginning Spring 2012, 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 a CC Promise Grant (Formerly known as the BOG Fee Waiver) to help cover the cost of your CA Resident enrollment fees.

Out of State/Country students or other course related fees, such as lab or materials fees, must be paid by the student.

Check the Financial Information/Account Summary link in
WebAdvisor to determine if you are at risk of being dropped from your classes for non-payment.
