Financial Aid

Financial Aid can assist students who are unable to meet the costs of attending college. Financial Aid can come in the forms of federal aid, state aid, grants, scholarships, loans, and payment plans. The first step to finding financial aid is to apply using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine eligibility for need-based aid. San Diego Global Knowledge makes every effort to assist students in achieving their educational goals.
