Workshops

College of the Desert encourages all students to complete a financial aid application. Please complete the FAFSA or CA Dream Act Application (CADAA) so that we can match you to financial aid opportunities! If you have questions regarding financial aid, please join our workshops listed below.

Not sure which application to complete? Review our Applying for Aid webpage for more information. 

For immediate assistance, check out the FATV portal which has short-video tutorial clips on the whole financial aid application process (FAFSA & CA Dream Act).

Note: If you are completing a financial aid application you will need the appropriate tax information. The 2023-2024 application will require 2021 tax information. The 2024-2025 application will require 2022 tax information.
