Financial Aid

Leveraging Free Financial Aid

Last year we helped students leverage $32.5 million in free financial aid! We’re committed to helping our students receive the most free federal and state financial aid they are eligible for. This includes support for undocumented students. All 10,000 Degrees students are paired with a near-peer Fellow who provides support in learning about the types of free financial aid available, which application to fill out, the various deadlines, and more.

To access financial aid, 10,000 Degrees supports students in completing either the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADAA).
