  • 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
  • You must declare an eligible major – you cannot be undecided and receive financial aid
