The El Camino College Financial Aid Office helps students and their families identify
ways to pay for college. Financial assistance can help cover fees, books, supplies
and transportation. There are several types of financial aid, including scholarships,
grants, work study and loans. Please review all the services available to you – we’re
here to help!
Classes for Fall, Winter & Spring will be online while the campus is closed. Student
Services are available online to provide support. For more details, contact your instructors
and programs for additional information or visit our website at: www.elcamino.edu/covid-19
El Camino College received funds under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security
(CARES) Act to provide emergency grants to students for expenses related to the disruption
of campus operations due to COVID-19. These expenses included food, housing, course
materials, technology, health care and child care.
In spring 2020 we used financial aid data to determine grant eligibility and distribute
funds to thousands of students. For the fall 2020 semester we will provide an application
to distribute additional funds and meet your emergency financial needs. To apply please
