Access & Disburse Aid

Fall Quarter Financial Aid will be delayed

Due to the transition to ctcLink, determination of financial aid eligibility for Fall Quarter students will be delayed.

  • Students who have applied for financial aid will have their classes placed on hold to prevent them from being dropped for non-payment while the Financial Aid office reviews their files to determine financial aid eligibility
  • Please plan accordingly to purchase books and supplies for your classes
  • Check out Shoreline's other funding options

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we transition to the new state-wide technology system.

The Financial Aid Office will process complete aid applications in the order in which they are received. The office will determine aid eligibility for each student and will notify them of their financial aid offer by email.

Students enrolled in less than full time credits, 12 or more credits, will need to notify the Financial Aid Office of their enrollment level. Waitlisted classes will not be counted as registered classes. Grants and waivers apply directly toward tuition and applicable fees first. Loan funds apply after all steps in the loan process have been completed. Any remaining funds are made available to the student as a refund.

Please Note: All debts owed to the College, such as parking tickets or library fines, must be paid before students can receive their financial aid refund. Students should start each quarter with some of their own funds to pay for books and other expenses.
