Financial Aid and Fees

Home Admissions Financial Aid and Fees

Money shouldn't get in the way of getting a college education. Our financial aid offices are here to help you get the financial support you need to pay your tuition and fees and afford college.

Apply for Financial Aid

Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADAA), and we will help you identify the aid for which you are eligible. The FAFSA is for US citizens and permanent residents, while the CADAA is for students who are not US citizens, permanent residents, or eligible non-citizens.

Make sure you are aware of the financial aid deadlines for each semester.

Sacramento City College's federal school code is 001233.
