Financial Aid

Assisting students in receiving a college education



Finanacial aid home page



We know that paying for college is a big challenge. That is why we are here to help you take advantage of all financial resources that are available. Do not be intimidated by the process. The state of California, federal government, and Los Medanos College wants you to succeed. Check out our homepage for information on how to apply.



**IMPORTANT MESSAGE 5/15/2018: Please note that the Contra Costa Community College District is transitioning to a new service provider to process financial aid refunds to students starting June 2018. If you plan to sign up for an electronic option for the first time or have already signed up for an electronic option, you will be required to sign up again with BankMobile, our new service provider, when it becomes available. You will receive an email and updated information will be posted to our webpages and InSite within the next few weeks. Financial Aid funds will be processed using new servicer, BankMobile, starting June 21, 2018.



California Dream Act "Follow Your Dreams"

It is important to note that today’s DACA decision does not impact a

student’s ability to attend our colleges, to qualify for an exemption from non-resident tuition fees under AB 540, or to apply for financial aid under the provisions of the California Dream Act. AB 540 and the California Dream Act are state programs that are entirely separate and distinct from DACA and the federal enforcement of immigration laws. Check out the California Dream Act “Follow Your Dreams” Video.
