Most of the forms required by the Financial Aid Office can be completed online (e-forms) through the student's Financial Aid Self-Service Portal. If you cannot find the form online or need help, please email us at FAO@collegeofthedesert.edu or call us at 760-773-2532. Please note, for emails, our turn around time is 2 business days from the date you email our office.
To complete the forms online (e-forms), students need to login to the Financial Aid Self-Service Portal:
Select the appropriate academic year and navigate to the 'Checklist' section. You will see 'Action Required' checklist to start the process.
During peak processing please allow at least 10-14 business days for the forms to be marked as received.
Parent signatures are still required for dependent students. Parents will have the option to provide signature online (e-signature) or by wet signature.
To provide wet signature, parents will need to fill out form, print, sign, and upload signed form on the Financial Aid Self Service Portal (Campus Logic).
Students are recommended to electronic sign their forms through the Financial Aid Self-service portal.
Please note that you may be requested to provide additional information during the review process. Once you have submitted all of the required forms, the Financial Aid Office can complete the review of your file and award your financial aid. Please allow sufficient time to complete this process. It is recommended that students complete their file by July 1st each year to ensure they receive their financial aid funds with the first disbursement in September and qualify for a bookstore authorization.
