How Do I Apply for Financial Aid?

STEP 1: Complete and submit the FAFSA form.
Form available on-line (www.fafsa.ed.gov), at the main campus Financial Aid Office (Clausen Hall 111A), and at City College at Wilshire.

STEP 2: Several weeks later, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) acknowledgment in the mail. Bring it to the Financial Aid Office to open a financial aid file and discuss any problems with your application.

STEP 3: The Financial Aid Office will review your application and automatically processes a fee waiver for students who meet the criteria. This may take a few weeks.

STEP 4: The Financial Aid Office will then send you an Award Notification Letter which states how much aid you will receive.

STEP 5: Typically your first award check will arrive two weeks after you receive the Award Notification, but it can take longer. Financial aid checks, except for loans, are either sent by mail, available for pick-up at the main campus Business Office upon request, or transferred electronically to the student’s bank account during the school year. You may apply for Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) at the main campus Business Office, AD 111.

How Do I Apply for a Fee Waiver?
If you are a low-income resident of California, you may qualify for a Board of Governors Enrollment Fee Waiver which covers your enrollment fees. The Fee Waiver DOES NOT cover books, parking permits, and living expenses. You will need to complete the FAFSA to apply for financial assistance with these areas.

NOTE: When you submit the FAFSA form, you are automatically considered for the fee waiver. If you need the fee waiver immediately, however, you may use a separate Board of Governors Fee Waiver form. Forms are available in the Financial Aid Office, Clausen Hall 111A.


What About Books?

Textbooks will be available for purchase at City College at Wilshire, at times to be announced, during the first 2 weeks of the semester. You may also purchase your textbooks at the main campus Bookstore located in the Cub Center Building. If you have an EOP&S book voucher, you can use the vouchers ONLY at the main campus Bookstore.
