Title IV Federal School Code: 001292
Specific federal and state financial aid programs available at Solano Community College include the following:
- Federal Pell Grants
- Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants
- Federal Work-Study
- U.S. Department of Education Direct Loan Program
|http://www.fafsa.ed.gov The major federal grant program available is the Pell Grant. Students get considered for this program by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by going online to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. The Department of Education determines the eligibility of a student based on a formula and according to units carried by a student per term.|
|http://www.fafsa.ed.gov This federal program is directed toward assisting exceptionally needy students. On-time applicants with the lowest Expected Family Contribution (EFC) receive consideration for this fund. Because funds are limited, it is important for students to meet the application deadline line.|
| http://www.fafsa.ed.gov The Federal Work Study program is a federally funded campus-based program that provides jobs for undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need according to the Department of Education formula. FWS allows students to earn money to help pay educational expenses.
How does it work?
Start Planning Early! Did you know you can get estimates of your Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and Federal Pell Grant eligibility using FAFSA4caster? Any student, regardless of age or year in school may use FAFSA4caster before officially applying using the FAFSA.
