Financial Aid - COVID-19 Helpful Resources and Information

Your wellbeing and that of our staff is priority. In an effort to exercise social distancing and minimize transmission of COVID-19, Saddleback College has temporarily suspended face-to-face services and instruction. The Financial Aid Office is closed until further notice for in-person interaction. However, staff is standing by and will gladly attend to your inquiries by phone, email and Zoom.

During this time, all processing of aid payments will go on as normal and you will receive any aid payments as expected.

Verification paperwork will still be accepted through the new secure My Financial Aid portal. Please log into your account at https://saddleback.verifymyfafsa.com to submit any documentation being requested and to check the status of your financial aid application.

Students wishing to complete an Income Reduction form for the 19-20 or 20-21 Academic Year, can do so by logging into their secure My Financial Aid portal at https://saddleback.verifymyfafsa.com, submit any required documentation and then by clicking on "Request", then select "Family Contribution Appeal". Students may then submit all documentation.
