Additional Important information:

  • Fee waivers are posted automatically if you are eligible using the FAFSA. Please contact the financial aid office if you have questions about the fee waiver.
  • If WEBSTAR indicates that your FAFSA information has been rejected, please contact the financial aid office
  • If your file is complete, in Spring you should receive an email that your award information is available in WEBSTAR
  • If you have questions about your awards or why you were determined ineligible, please contact the financial aid office.
  • Federal regulations require that you provide unexpired, government issued photo ID in order to discuss income information provided on your FAFSA
  • IVC does not participate in the Federal Student Loan programs, so state and federal aid (except for Work-Study) is given in the form of grants and does not need to be repaid as long as you remain eligible and attend your classes
  • If you have received a Cal Grant you must report the college you will be attending as well as verify your high school graduation with the California Student Aid Commission at https://mygrantinfo.csac.ca.gov .
  • You must declare an eligible major – you cannot be undecided and receive financial aid
  • You must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) to remain eligible.
  • We strongly encourage you to take only courses required for your major, otherwise you may run out of aid before you complete your program

Summer Financial Aid:

  • If you are planning to attend IVC during Summer 2019, you must complete the current year (2018-19) FAFSA and follow the steps listed above
  • You may visit the Financial Aid Lab inside building 1700 if you need assistance
