Types of Financial Aid
The type of funding a student is eligible for is determined by information from a student's FAFSA or California Dream Act Application. Depending on your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), our office may offer you a variety of assistance that may be comprised of more than one award type. Factors that may affect your eligibility for financial aid include income level, enrollment status, or grade point average.
