Financial Resources


Starting your college journey can feel overwhelming, but securing financial aid through the FAFSA is simpler than you might think.  

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is your key to obtaining cash for college from the federal government, the state of California, and even your school. Each year, thousands of students unlock the financial aid they need to make their educational dreams a reality through FAFSA. 

By completing the FAFSA, you open the door to grants, scholarships, work-study opportunities, and low-interest federal student loans. Whether you’re planning to attend a four-year university, community college, or trade school, submitting a FAFSA can help you manage the cost of your education. Don’t leave money on the table—make sure you take full advantage of the financial aid available to you.
