Getting Started

Welcome to the Imperial Valley College Financial Aid Web page!

IVC offers a full array of financial aid programs- grants, work study, scholarships, and fee waivers (we do not participate in the federal loan programs). These programs are available to both full and part time students who are seeking a degree or certificate. We have financial aid available to help you with tuition, fees, books and supplies, food, housing, transportation, and childcare.

Every year Imperial Valley College awards over $20 million dollars to students, all in the form of grants or scholarships that do not have to be paid back. An additional $7 million in fee waivers assists students with tuition costs. Each year, over 80% of the students attending IVC receive some type of financial assistance in the form of grants, scholarships, work study, or  fee waivers. Imperial Valley College does not participate in any of the federal student loan programs; however, general information regarding private education loans is available upon request.

Please take some time to check out the information on these pages to learn more about the financial aid eligibility regulations, where and how to apply, and what type of aid you might be eligible to receive. We encourage you to invest an hour in your future and apply for financial aid.
