Please check The Zone, under "unsatisfied requirements" to make sure you
are downloading, completing and submitting the appropriate forms for the correct
Financial Aid school year.
Why we need your completed forms:
In order to complete your financial aid file each year, you
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 is complete.
Please bring all of your requested financial aid follow-up documents to the
Chabot College Financial Aid Office during our
office hours. We
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 award letter which will inform you of types and amounts
of financial aid for which you are eligible. Please view your financial
aid file and award status on The Zone, rather than calling or visiting our office, to allow
our staff more time to process and award student's files.
