Financial Aid Forms
Please note: To access Financial Aid documents from this
site, you need
Acrobat Reader and a printer. These are not
PDF-fillable forms - do not try to convert to MSWord. You must
print and complete the old fashioned way.
Check The Zone, under "unsatisfied requirements" to make sure you
are downloading, completing and submitting the appropriate forms for the correct
Chabot Financial Aid General Information Brochure
Why we need your completed forms:
In order to qualify for federal or state
financial aid each year
, students complete the FAFSA or Dream
Application, and submit to the Department of Education or California
Student Aid Commission. The school receives that application,
and then it is our responsibility to verify, or confirm the accuracy
of the information that you provided. We call this
"verification" or sometimes "processing".
In order to complete your financial aid file each year
will need to supply all forms and documents that are requested (found on CLASS-Web,
and the Zone). Each must be completed,
signed and dated, with appropriate documentation attached. No financial
aid will be awarded or disbursed until your file with our office is complete.
Please bring all of your requested financial aid follow-up documents to the
Chabot College Financial Aid Office during our
may request additional documents after our initial review.
After the review has been completed, if you are eligible for financial aid,
you will receive an email directing you to the Zone, where you will
see types and amounts
of financial aid for which you are eligible. Please view your financial
aid and award status on The Zone, rather than calling or visiting our office, to allow
our staff more time to process and award other students' files.

Pell Grant Limits
Eligibility Used (LEU)
Regulations effective July 1, 2012 limits the recipient of
a Pell Grant to a lifetime of up to 6 full-time
years (600%) which is equal to 12 full-time
semesters at any community college, vocational
school or four year bachelor program. Once you reach
the 600% Pell LEU, you will no longer be eligible
for any additional Pell grant. Log on to
using your FSA ID and view your LEU found on the
Financial Aid Review page.
What this means for you:
You must plan now
for your future, especially if you plan to transfer
to a four year college for a Bachelors degree.
The six year limit is a LIFETIME limit,
regardless of completion of your academic goals or
Bachelors degree. This regulation is in effect even
if you have had an appeal approved for failure to
meet academic progress, it supersedes any prior
offer of aid/award, and the Department of Education
allows for no appeal or exception.
