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.
- 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 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 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
