What is Financial Aid?
Student financial aid programs were created to assist students in paying for their college education. Funding for these programs comes from a variety of sources including the United State Department of Education, State of California and several other private sources. Federal, State and Private funds awarded to students can be used to pay for fees, books, supplies, room and board and transportation costs. Although Financial Aid is generally provided to assist with the costs of attending college it is not intended in any way to supplant a students income or the parents ability to pay for their students college cost.
