It’s not too late to apply for the 2018-2019 FAFSA/CA Dream Act Application to be considered for aid for this academic year (Fall 2018, Spring 2019, and Summer 2019). You may be surprised by your financial aid options!

You are eligible to apply for aid if you are a U.S. Citizen/Eligible noncitizen/AB540 eligible student.

If you’re a first-time college student and enroll full time, you may be eligible for the AB19 California College Promise Free Tuition Program—it covers up to 30 credits for the cost of enrollment fees, mandatory fees, and $250/semester for books! More information can be found at

Come to one of our FAFSA/Dream Act support sessions in the Placement Test Center so one of our staff members can help you fill out the FAFSA application!
