Financial aid is available in the form of grants, scholarships, work study and student loans. Apply today to see if you qualify. Steps to completing the financial aid process are as follows:
Complete your financial aid application for the appropriate aid year. You may complete either the FAFSA application at studentaid.gov or California Dream Act application at
dream.csac.ca.gov. Be sure to include Citrus College's school code (001166) so Citrus College can receive your application.
Check your Citrus College email account for requests for additional documentation. For the current academic year, it general takes seven to 10 business days for us to receive your application. For the fall of the next academic year, emails will be sent as early as March.
Complete any required tasks as soon as possible. Most of the information can be submitted online at
citruscollege.verifymyfafsa.com. Once you have submitted all the required information, the financial aid department will review your financial aid application and make any necessary changes. Please allow 10-15 business days in most cases for your application to be reviewed.
Once your financial aid file has been completed, the financial aid department will award any financial aid you are eligible for. You will receive an "Award Notification" via email. Your awards are based on full-time attendance (12 or more units each fall and spring term). At the time of each disbursement, your awards will be adjusted based on the number of units you are officially enrolled in and currently attending.
