Financial Aid Policies

How eligibility is determined:

Your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to determine your Financial Aid Award. Your first step is to complete your FAFSA online and the Federal Processor will send your FAFSA information to Glendale Community College (School Code 001076).  For further information, please visit the Department of Education's website.

What classes/courses are covered by Financial Aid:

Federal Financial Aid will only fund courses required to complete your declared program of study at Glendale Community College (GCC). If you are registered for courses not needed for your degree, you will not receive any additional funding for those specific classes. For more information, please visit the Course Applicability website. If you need assistance determining if the courses you are registered for are required for your degree, please reach out to GCC’s Academic Advisement for assistance.
