Plan ahead to apply for Financial Aid before registering for classes! Financial Aid is a process that starts with the FAFSA www.fafsa.ed.gov (or CADA https://dream.csac.ca.gov/ for AB-540 students). Your financial aid application must be electronically processed by the federal (or state) government before it is sent to Solano Community College which can take between 3-7 days. Solano Community College electronically evaluates your BOG fee waiver eligibility when your application is received in our system and notifies you through your MySolano email and Financial Aid tab under the appropriate aid year.
  • Summer 2017 term: Apply with 2016-2017 FAFSA (or CADA) through June 30, 2017.
  • Fall 2017 term: Apply with the 2017-2018 FAFSA (or CADA) through June 30, 2018.
Don’t delay! Plan ahead to complete the financial aid application process before registering for classes!
