Read the 4 Simple Steps to Financial Aid to learn about new regulations and changes that could IMPACT your financial aid application. 

New Financial Aid Regulations for 2014-2015 award year 

All first-time SBVC students without a high school diploma or a GED enrolling in classes on or after July 1, 2012, will not be eligible for federal financial aid as a result of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2012 passed by Congress. This law applies to all colleges and universities. Students without a high school diploma or GED can still apply for scholarships and the CA College Promise Grant (CCPG) Waiver if they meet income and residency qualifications.

A copy of your Federal Tax return is NO LONGER considered acceptable documentation to verify your income. You MUST request an IRS Tax Transcript through the IRS office for the income verification process.  To obtain an IRS Tax Transcript go to www.irs.gov or call 1-800-909-9946.  You can also visit the local IRS office at 290 N. D. Street, San Bernardino, CA  92401.  They are open Monday - Friday from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm, hours subject to change.  For more information call 909-388-8108. 

Students are encouraged to use the IRS Data Retrieval when completing the FAFSA. The IRS Data Retrieval Process is a way to get your tax information directly from the IRS without having to have a copy of your taxes with you when completing the FAFSA. If you have filed a Federal tax return, you will be asked if you want to retrieve your information directly from the IRS. If you select this option, you will be guided through the process. Once your information is transferred from the IRS to your FAFSA, it will be marked that it has been transferred from the IRS. This verifies that the information on the FAFSA has been matched and verified with the IRS.

Life time limit for the Pell Grant has been changed from 18 full time semesters to 12 full time semesters. The Life time Pell Grant limit is applicable to all continuing and new students.
