Welcome to Financial Aid!
The Financial Aid/EOPS Office offers a variety of aid programs, including grants, loans, scholarships, and work study opportunities for students who are having a difficult time meeting the cost of attending Napa Valley College. Any student who is having financial difficulties is urged to apply for financial assistance by submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), or the California Dream Act Application for AB540 eligible Dreamers. Our friendly staff are here to assist you with the application process and to help you understand the types of assistance that may be available to you. Don't disqualify yourself! If you think you need financial aid, apply for it.
