Educational Goal Information


It is important to make sure your declared Educational Goal is current with Shasta College's Admissions and Records Office.

Not all programs offered at Shasta College are eligible to fund students for Federal and State  Financial Aid. All programs offered as an Associates Degree or Higher are eligible.  All Certificates must be approved by the Department of Education (DOE) prior to awarding students enrolled in the program. When new certificates are created, or existing certificates modified, they must be approved by the DOE prior to funding, which is a lengthy process and we appreciate your patience. In order to be approved by the DOE, they must be at least 16 units and lead to Gainful Employment.
