Interested in attending a Peralta College? To learn about applying for financial aid, see below:

 

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

All applicants for federal and state financial aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

 

What Is a FAFSA?

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the form the U.S. Department of Education (ED) requires to determine your Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The government conducts a “need analysis” based on financial information, such as income, assets, and other family information, which you (and your parents if you are a dependent student) will be asked to provide.

 Your application is examined by a federal processor and the results are sent by computer to the financial aid offices of the colleges you’ve chosen.

 The FAFSA is the application most colleges use to determine eligibility for federal, state, and college-sponsored financial aid, including grants, educational loans, and work-study programs.

 

 A new FAFSA must be filed every school year. You may complete your application beginning January 1 for the following award year .
