Educational Assistance 
Students who are having difficulty in the program are advised to seek out the faculty, program director, counselors, and other services available on campus. The Shasta College Learning Resources Center has references, media, and computer assisted instruction. Many videotapes and computerized instruction programs have been obtained for student use.

Financial Assistance
Processing of financial aid requests takes time.  If you are going to need financial aid for the Dental Hygiene program, it is important that you work with a financial aid counselor as soon as possible. Information regarding financial aid programs, process, etc can be found on the  Financial Aid website.  If students stay current with applications (FASFA, etc.) so that everything is in order, then the processing of the requests will take less time. 

If students who are invited to enroll in a class have not already filled out financial aid applications and have confirmations in hand, they may experience delays in the financial aid process such that they are not prepared financially for the program and will have to decline the enrollment invitation.
