New Learning: Maximizing Financial Aid For California’s Community College Students

Financial aid is a critical driver for student success in the California Community Colleges. Providing faculty and staff information about the basics of financial aid bridges campus silos, while also being a means of closing equity gaps as students can get increased support in receiving and maintaining their financial aid. Maximizing Financial Aid For California’s Community College Students is a new learning module in the Vision Resource Center that is meant to help faculty and non-financial aid staff understand basic financial aid information and related support for students.

This module reviews financial aid in the California Community Colleges and covers:

  • College Affordability
  • Financial Aid Programs
  • Helping Students Maximize Awards
  • Supporting Students Through the Process
