College of the Desert encourages all students to complete a financial aid application. Please complete the FAFSA or CA Dream Act Application so that we can match you to financial aid opportunities!

If you have questions regarding financial aid, please join a financial aid workshop. Staff will be available to assist you with any financial aid questions that you have. We can help you submit your financial aid missing documents, your financial aid application or answer general questions.

If you would like to attend a zoom workshop, please check back for upcoming zoom workshop dates. We will have our spring 2022 workshops posted soon! Zoom links will be sent before the workshop after you complete the sign up form.

If you would like to attend an in-person workshop, check out our in-person workshop dates. No registration is required for in-person workshops. 

If you need help with your financial aid application, please be sure to bring tax information for the 2019 and 2020 year.

For immediate assistance, check out the FATV portal which has short-video tutorial clips on the financial aid process.
