Gainful Employment Data
To be considered for financial aid, students must generally meet the following minimum requirements:
Be a U.S Citizen or eligible non-citizen (a permanent resident who has valid documentation from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS formerly INS) verifying that his/her stay in the U.S. is for other than a temporary purpose).
Please note new regulation effective July 1, 2012: Students who first enroll in a program of study on or after July 1, 2012 MUST have a high school diploma or its equivalent or meet the home schooled requirements or passed the GED to be eligible for financial aid.
Convictions for processing or selling illegal drugs may affect your federal financial aid eligibility.
A student who attempts to obtain financial aid by fraud will be suspended from financial aid for unsatisfactory conduct. The college may report such instances to local law enforcement agencies, to the California Student Aid Commission and to the Federal Government. Restitution of any financial aid received in such manner will be required.
Please note: Students cannot receive financial aid for audited or community services classes. If you decide for whatever reason to audit or enroll in a community services class or classes, you are ineligible to receive a BOGFW or any other financial aid for this course(s). You are solely responsible for the payment of this class or classes. No exceptions to this policy can be made.
