Apply for Financial Aid Today!

The first step to getting financial help is to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you are not a US citizen, permanent resident, or eligible non-citizen, you will need to fill out the California Dream Act Application instead of the FAFSA.

Sacramento City College's federal school code is 001233.

Types of Financial Aid

  • Promise programs offer first-time, full-time students up to two years of tuition-free education at our colleges.
  • Grants come from the federal or state government. Typically, you do not have to pay grants back – they are essentially free money.
  • A direct loan is money you borrow that you have to pay back with interest.
  • A scholarship is money given to you by a college or outside organization to help pay for your education or related expenses.
  • The federal work-study (FWS) program provides jobs to students to help them pay for their educational expenses.

Maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress

Did you know you can lose your financial aid if you don't meet certain requirements? Make sure you maintain satisfactory academic progress (SAP) to keep your financial aid.
