Financial Aid and Veterans Services Office Mission

Our Mission is to increase the number of students receiving financial assistance, ​which will contribute to the successful completion of their academic goals.

What is Financial Aid?

Federal and State Financial Aid is designed to assist students overcome financial barriers to successfully complete their educational goal and is made available by federal/state/private agencies in the form of grants, scholarships, loans, and federal work study. Financial Aid is also limited to only supporting classes specifically required for a student’s educational goal. Financial Aid is also designed to strictly be used for assisting students educational cost to attend college and is intended to help fill the gap between the students/family’s expected family contribution (EFC) and the cost of attending college.
Financial Aid is not a means of income, yet should be viewed as a resource to overcome financial barriers from achieving higher education. View Steps to apply for Financial Aid at Shasta College for next steps.
