Welcome to the Office of Financial Aid!
The Financial Aid Office at Cañada College will be closed on Thursday, March 3 2016 due to Campus wide Flex Day activities. We will resume our regular hours on Friday, March 4 2016.
It is the mission of the Cañada College Financial Aid Department to aid students and prospective students in their understanding, application, and timely receipt of all eligible financial aid resources they need to reduce the significant barriers the costs of higher education present. Our philosophy is that everyone is deserving of an education and we support this entitlement through education, compassion and respect.

May 2015: Federal Student Aid ID replacing the PIN The U.S. Department of Education is improving identity confirmation. Effective May 10, 2015 the U.S. Department of Education will replace the Student Aid PIN with the new FSA ID for all students and parents. You will need the new FSA ID to log into the Federal Student Aid websites. The first time you log into the sites after May 10th you will be prompted to set up an FSA ID. The process should only take a few minutes and then students, parents, and borrowers will use the FSA ID to access federal websites including:
- FAFSA on the Web
- NSLDS Student Access
Please see the instructions for creating your FSA ID.
