The Office of Financial Aid oversees three types of aid that are provided by the federal and state government for students:
Students may apply for these three types of aid by filling out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Whether or not you think you are eligible for these types of aid, we recommend that you file for the FAFSA. The Office of Financial Aid also announces scholarships and considers your FAFSA information in the awarding process. If you have any questions regarding these types of aid, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at (562) 985-8403.
Scholarship search engines are a great way to find off-campus scholarships not listed with the Center for Scholarship Information. Choose a search engine, and fill out a student profile on their website. The scholarship search engine will then send information on scholarships to your e-mail account. Scholarship search engines also provide a wide variety of information on other financial aid topics.
