Chabot College • Fall 2021 Class Schedule 6 510.723.6600 • FINANCIAL AID For themost current and accurate information, policies, procedures, dates and due dates : FINANCIAL AID Financial aid is money provided by the Federal Government, the State of California, and administered by Chabot College to help cover costs associated with attending college at Chabot. Students at Chabot may be considered for California Promise Grant (Fee Waiver), federal/state grants, scholarship, Federal Work Study, and Direct Student Loans. HOW TO APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID? Each year, beginning Oct. 1, each student completes the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or CA DreamAct Application online. The FAFSA is submitted electronically to the US Department of Education, and the CA Dream Act Application is submitted to the California Student Aid Commission, not to the Financial Aid Office (FAO). Use Chabot’s school code of 001162 so that Chabot will receive the results electronically from the federal or state processor. Students and parents use tax and income information from two years prior. (2019 for 2021-22 application) Students (and parents) are expected to use IRS Data Retrieval Tool to securely and filing accurately transfer IRS tax information to the FAFSA. Using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool increases the accuracy of financial aid awards and reduces the amount of documents required during verification with the Financial Aid Office. See page 8 for important changes to application cycle. Applying early and accurately helps us process your file faster. If you miss the priority date of March 2nd, you can submit an application at a later date. However, your eligibility for aid may not be determined in time for initial semester disbursements, and you will be responsible for purchasing your own books and materials. We must receive your application before the last date of enrollment in a semester, or by due dates posted on our website. WHAT IS FINANCIAL AID?
