Apply for Financial Aid in Three Steps
You can get money for college in different ways, such as through grants, scholarships, work-study, and student loans. To apply for financial aid, you need to follow three steps:
Fill out a financial aid application for the academic year you plan to attend Citrus College. You can choose to fill out either the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act Application (CADAA). To help you choose which one to fill out and get tips for completing it, you can look at the 2023-2024 Financial Aid Application Guide. And don't forget to include Citrus College's school code (001166) so we can view and process your application.
Complete a financial aid application based on the term(s) you plan to enroll:
- 2023-2024 Financial Aid Application if enrolling in fall 2023, spring 2024, and/or summer 2024
- 2024-2025 Financial Aid Application if enrolling in fall 2024, spring 2025, and/or summer 2025
Check your Citrus College email for requests for more information. It may take up to 10 business days to process your application. If you're applying for aid for the next school year, you can expect to receive emails as early as April.
Check your Financial Aid Dashboard to see if there are any tasks you need to complete. You can submit most of the required information online at citruscollege.studentforms.com. Once you've submitted everything, the financial aid department will review your application and make any necessary changes. This usually takes around 10-15 business days.
After your financial aid application is complete, you'll receive an email telling you how much money you're eligible to receive titled "Offer of Financial Aid". Your awards are based on full-time attendance (12 or more units each fall and spring term). If you take fewer units, your disbursements will be adjusted accordingly.
