The Financial Aid Office at Moorpark College is comprised of dedicated financial aid professionals committed to serving students by providing them information to secure the necessary financial resources to meet their educational objectives. The types and amounts of financial aid Moorpark College awards or recommends are subject to availability of funds, eligibility for funds, enrollment status and financial need. Moorpark College students have a variety of financial aid programs available for assistance. Programs vary in eligibility criteria, award amounts, and repayment options.

Program Purpose: The Financial Aid Office assists students in achieving their educational goals by providing access to an array of financial resources to fund their education. Students may receive assistance in filling out their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and receive information on the various forms of aid available to them. The Financial Aid Office administers a variety of federal and state financial aid programs to assist students with their education costs at Moorpark College. To be considered for these programs, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for each academic year. Note: Additional forms are required for state aid programs. Some applications have filing requirements and priority filing deadlines for state aid. Due to limitations in funding, the Financial Aid Office may not offer sufficient financial aid to cover the entire cost of education. Adhering to the priority filing deadlines and responding promptly to requests for additional information from the Financial Aid Office is a critical component to receiving the most financial aid that you may qualify for. For additional information regarding the types of financial aid recipients, please refer to the Moorpark College Catalog and the Moorpark College Financial Aid Office webpages.
