Help Paying For College
Financial aid is money that is given, paid or loaned to you to help pay for your college education or vocational training. It can also be a waiver of select college fees.
To start, check out our financial aid program options.
Then apply for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application, depending on eligibility.
