I Can Afford College  

I Can Afford College

“I Can Afford College” got its start back in 2004, shortly after the California community colleges increased their enrollment fees. The governor and the state legislature wanted to make sure Californians knew how to make college affordable, so they set aside money to create an awareness campaign about financial aid. This website is one of the main elements of that campaign. Since the site was launched, it has received more than 2 million visits. Additionally, the number of community college students who receive some type of financial aid has gone up by 68 percent since 2004. Find out more at:
