From The Moorpark College Financial Aid Office

"If we have the 2021-2022 FAFSA/CADAA & the student qualifies for CCPG (California College Promise Grant) it’s already awarded, visible to them on their portal, & they already were emailed an award letter at the my.vcccd.edu email with the information.

If the student will qualify for the Moorpark Promise these awards happen generally in July once we receive funding from the state. The student can contact our office in early July before the payment comes due or can contact our office now at 805-378-1462 to discuss if they appear to be eligible for the Moorpark Promise."

SO YOU NEED MORE MONEY!

So You have completed your:


  • FAFSA/CA Dream Act
  • Applied to Local Scholarships
  • Received your Financial Aid Package from your accepted college

And now, you need more money to go to your Dream College!


* Call the Financial Aid office at the college with a parent/guardian/adult (if possible)

  • Ask them for more scholarships, grants, and work study that you can apply for
  • Confirm your Financial Aid and tuition bill
  • Specifically, ask about jobs in HOUSING. These jobs can give Free room & board (food) = you may not get it Freshman year but it can come in handy for the years after.
  • For out-of-state public colleges, ask them about obtaining in-state residency, what is required? You may switch to in-state tuition if you become a resident.
* Lookup the Dean or Notable Professor on your intended Major's webpage
  • Email or Call them asking for opportunities for incoming Freshman
  • Do not miss any deadlines or cool opportunities like study abroad, internships, research, jobs, grants, and more money.


Most often, your Freshman year is the most expensive!


Some other opportunities:

  • Join the ROTC program at your college for Freshman year. Typically, you take 1 leadership class a semester/quarter, workout once a week with friends, and you do not sign a contract to become an Officer until Sophomore year.
  • If you decide the ROTC program is not right for you, you do not have to continue (no penalties because you are not under contract.) If you decide it is right for you, they will pay your tuition, earn a stipend each month, and help pay for your room & board and books.
