Welcome to Financial Aid

Our goal is to assist you in bridging the gap between your own resources and the cost of attending college. We offer assistance with completing applications and providing information about the requirements of the various financial aid programs. Financial aid consists of federal grants, work study, state grants, fee waivers, and outside scholarships.

FAFSA – start here to apply for financial aid

Use the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online to apply for
campus-based aid and the Pell Grant. List Woodland Community College as the college of choice, the federal code number is 041438.

CADAA – start here to apply for financial aid, if you are not eligible for the FAFSA

Use the California Dream Act Application (CADAA) online to apply for
California state financial aid. List Woodland Community College as the college of choice, the school code number is 041438.

FEE WAIVER CHANGES – California College Promise Grant Changes

Beginning the 2018/2019 aid year, the Board of Governors Fee Waiver (BOG) will be called the California College Promise Grant.

Attention Students: Don’t lose your California College Promise Grant!
The California College Promise Grant is now based on minimum GPA and course completion standards! (W’s/NP’s)

Starting Fall 2016 semester, your grades will be used to determine CC Promise Grant. Due to a change in state law, students will need to sustain a GPA of 2.0 or higher and complete 50% of coursework to maintain CC Promise Grant eligibility. If your GPA falls below a 2.0 and/or cumulative course completion is less than 50% for two consecutive primary terms (fall/spring), you may lose your CC Promise Grant.

Please visit the Financial Aid or Counseling Office to find out more about how you can keep your education on track. You can also make an appointment to see a counselor by calling: 530-661-5703 or by scheduling an appointment online through WebAdvisor.
