Students need to be aware that financial aid will only fund courses that are part of their major, general education and/or transfer, including basic skills, prerequisite, and ESL courses.
Once enrolled, students may receive a notification in their eServices account regarding courses that are ineligible for financial aid. Students who have questions about this should stay enrolled until they have met with a counselor.
Counseling appointments can be made online.
The BOG FEE waiver (called California College Promise Grant as of Fall 2017) is not affected. If a student has been awarded a BOG Fee Waiver, it will cover the enrollment fees for all courses, even those not required for the student’s major. However, the student’s total financial aid award may be reduced.
