Direct Loan Program Information

Community Colleges in California remain an affordable option for students to receive their education. Chabot College is a low-cost public institution with limited entrance requirements. The enrollment fee waiver (California College Promise Grant, formerly known as BOG) and grant assistance (PELL) typically covers the cost of education at Chabot College. However, some students (out of state residents, for example) may need to borrow money to help with school related expenses. Typically, a student who needs to borrow money to get through school is making a good investment for the future. 

Unfortunately, many students enter into debt without a clear picture of how it will affect them in the future. Therefore, the Financial Aid Office does not award student loans as part of the "award package" in our initial review for financial aid eligibility. Students who are interested in borrowing a federal student loan at Chabot College are required to submit a completed Direct Loan Application Form to the Chabot College Financial Aid Office.  

We are dedicated to supporting student success – our goal is to help our students develop a realistic educational borrowing plan to ensure that those who plan to transfer will have sufficient loan eligibility remaining to complete their education, and those whose plans conclude with a certificate or associate degree will not be overly burdened with student loan debt.
