Financial Aid Award News

The California Student Aid Commission has opened applications for the Golden State Education and Training Grant Program (GSETGP). This program supports Californians who lost their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic with a one-time grant of $2,500 to reskill, up-skill, and access educational or training programs to get back into the workforce. For more information and to access the application, visit GSETG.

The Student Success Completion Grant (SSCG) is a financial aid program for Cal Grant recipients attending a California community college full-time. Beginning with the 2022-2023 award year, the Student Success Completion Grant pays Cal Grant B or C recipients enrolled in at least 12 but fewer than 15 semester units $1298 per semester ($2596 annually).
