Apply for Financial Aid

Determine which application to fill out 

If you are a U.S. citizen, eligible non-citizens, permanent resident or an asylee, T visa holder, parolee, or refugee, you may qualify for both federal and state aid.  You should complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

If you are not  a citizen or one of the other categories previously listed, but you qualify for the California Nonresident Tuition Exemption as an AB 540 student, you may qualify for state aid. You can complete a California Dream Act Application (CADAA).
