Where does my financial aid come from/Who provides my financial aid?

Thank you for your inquiry.  Financial Aid funds are provided from three basic sources: Federal, State and Institutional.
  • Federal - Federal regulations outline and govern institutional and student responsibilities; as well as application procedures.  Federal regulations also set policy standards.
  • State - The state of California regulates institutional and student responsibilities, maintenance of student records, and recipient enrollment requirements.
  • Institutional - Financial assistance policies and procedures are established by the Financial Aid Director in coordination with the school administration.
