Institutions are usually seeking ways to maximize the amount of financial aid their students receive. One of the first steps in being able to do so, is to increase your knowledge of the many different financial aid programs that exist.
The Internet is a convienient tool for researching this kind of information. To remain current, we recommend that your financial aid bookmarks include the web sites listed below.
Additionally, your institution should become a member of the California Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (CASFAA). CASFAA is an organization dedicated to the California student financial aid professional.
Last, but not least, you may also attend one of the Student Aid Commission's workshops on financial aid topics.
