The mission of the Financial Aid Office at Saddleback College is to provide services to students in their search for funds to help offset the cost of their education and thereby help students pursue their personal and educational goals.

The Financial Aid Office is open for in-person assistance, during our normal business hours in Gateway (GW) 111.  You can also reach us via phone, email, and virtual counter.  Don’t forget your current Saddleback College ID Card or your valid (non-expired) government-issued photo ID when visiting the Financial Aid Office in person.
