Our Best Answer - What summer aid is available?

Summer Aid Availability

You must have a FAFSA or CA Dream Act Application on file to be eligible for summer financial aid. Types of aid vary depending on eligibility criteria. For more information on the types of aid awarded or eligibility for summer, please visit the Summer aid section of our website. 

Each year our office publishes a Summer Aid Estimator in early April for student’s to use to estimate their aid eligibility for the upcoming summer.
