The Foothill-De Anza District has finally transitioned to a new scholarship system called AcademicWorks that will make applying for scholarships much easier and more efficient. We have posted dozens of scholarship opportunities for the 2014-15 academic year. The general scholarship deadline is: April 3, 2015.
Come learn how to apply for Financial Aid and what the next steps are if you have already filled out an application. Be prepared to have some serious fun and to pick up some useful information in the process.
Please be aware that due to Foothill College's Cohort Default Rates we are now required to delay by a minimum of 30 calendar days the first loan payment of the year for all 1st year students who are 1st time Direct Loan borrowers. If you believe this may include you, please feel free to contact the Foothill College Financial Aid Office to make sure all your questions are clearly answered. We understand this may have a significant financial impact on some and apologize for this federally mandated delay.
If you are not new to the Direct Loan program or received your first payment into your student account on or before September 22nd, this will not impact you.
