  • If your file is complete and you are eligible, in Spring you will receive an email with your award information.
  • If you have questions about your awards or why you were determined ineligible, please contact the financial aid office.
  • Federal regulations require that you provide an unexpired, government-issued photo ID in order to discuss income information provided on your FAFSA
  • IVC does not participate in the Federal Student Loan programs, so state and federal aid (except for Work-Study) is given in the form of grants and does not need to be repaid as long as you remain eligible and attend your classes
  • If you have received a Cal Grant you must report the college you will be attending as well as verify your high school graduation with the California Student Aid Commission at https://mygrantinfo.csac.ca.gov
  • You must declare an eligible major – and you may only receive financial aid for courses required for your chosen program.
  • You must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) to remain eligible.
