Tuition Reimbursement

The Child Development Training Consortium is a federal block grant funded program that provides funding to reimburse at least partial tuition costs for Child Development students at Saddleback College.

  • Note: This reimbursement does not interfere with or prevent access to other financial aid funds.
  • Note: All community colleges offer this program but process applications separately. If you attend other colleges, even IVC, during the same semester, you must submit a separate application to each college.
