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! Staff will be available to assist you with any financial aid questions that you have (missing documents, submitting financial aid application, or answer general questions).

Note, if you are completing a financial aid application you will need the appropriate tax information. The 2021-2022 applications will required 2019 tax information. The 2022-2023 application will require 2020 tax information.

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