Financial Aid

What is Financial Aid?

Financial aid is money that is given, paid or loaned to you to help pay for your college education or vocational training. It can also be a waiver of select college fees.

 
More than 25% of Foothill College students receive some form of financial aid to help offset the cost of attending college.

 

At Foothill, we think it's important for you to choose the right financial aid resources to help you achieve your educational goals and avoid excessive student debt. 

We know that more students are eligible to receive aid, and we can help you access those resources.
