Money for Education Image

Our Goal

Through a genuine commitment to all students and their families, the Financial Aid (FA) Office is here to assist with eliminating financial worries so that you might obtain maximum benefit from the educational opportunities available. The FAO at each college recognizes that your situation is unique, and your application is carefully analyzed with complete confidentiality regarding your personal financial information. We are dedicated to providing high-quality service in a fair, sensitive, and confidential environment to all individuals, regardless of background, culture, or lifestyle. Please visit for more information.



  • Unsubsidized loans overborrowing: Students will understand the Experimental Site Initiative that San Diego City College and the U.S. Department of Education are participating in - that attempts to reduce or eliminate unnecessary overborrowing for specific groups of students. These groups are First year students and students not meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
  • Cohort Default Rate: Students will understand their responsibility in repaying Federal Direct student loans and using a third-party servicer - their options to avoid going into default when they are delinquent in their loan payments.


COVID-19 (updates for August 2020)  - San Diego City College is currently closed to all students, faculty, and staff.
