On Thursday, October 4, the financial aid office hosted its fall Financial Aid Awareness Day attracting over 150 students. The event promoted the new 2019-2020 FAFSA and California Dream Act application which opened for students to apply on October 1, 2018. Students were invited to learn some of the new changes and features that rolled out with the 19-20 applications such as the myStudentAid mobile app which allows students and their families to complete the FAFSA on their smartphones. Free Costco Hot Dogs were provided to students after completing a brief survey regarding their current use of financial aid which includes the California College Promise Grant (CCFG) fee waiver, grants, scholarships and the Federal Work-Study program.
Students were also exposed to the fall financial aid workshops and the upcoming scholarship season. The financial aid office will be hosting a Scholarship Kickoff event on November 5, 2018.
