Financial Assistance

Health Care Integrated School Based Health offers students several options for payment of tuition.  All students are encouraged to apply for financial assistance if unable to meet educational costs on their own.  HCISBH participates in several types of Title IV and WIOA programs, many of which are based on financial need.

Students seeking financial assistance must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov.  The College’s Financial Aid Officer uses this information to determine students’ eligibility and assists them in deciding what resources are best suited to their circumstances.  Students must meet all eligibility requirements to qualify for Federal Student Aid.  The Financial Aid Department may request additional documentation to support the student’s request for financial assistance, including, for example, signed copies of federal income tax returns.  Renewal of financial aid is not automatic.  Recipients are required to reapply each year by the announced deadline.

Federal and state grants and loans will be disbursed onto student accounts to cover direct educational costs.  Disbursements in excess of direct costs will be refunded to the student.prompt arrangements may be subject to financial suspension and will be referred to an outside collection agency.

  2. Be enrolled in an eligible program;
  3. Be making satisfactory academic progress toward graduation;
  4. Be a high school graduate or have obtained a GED or the equivalent;

The following is a description of the financial aid programs available at Health Care Integrated School Based Health for students who qualify.  Additional information may be obtained through the Financial Services Department.

Cal Grant A and B are State Grant programs administered by the State of California and are available to students who are California residents, who have applied before the March 2nd deadline, and who are enrolled in the institution at the commencement of the award year.  Cal Grant funds are awarded based on semester enrollment during the award year. Grants are based on funds available from the State and do not have to be repaid.

The Federal PELL Grant program provides a foundation of assistance to which other forms of aid may be added.  Eligibility for the Federal PELL Grant Program is determined by a standard formula that is revised and approved every year by the federal government.  Unlike loans, grants do not have to be paid back.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are available to a limited number of students with exceptional financial need.  Grants are based on funds available and do not have to be repaid.  Need is determined by the financial resources of the student and parents and the cost of attendance.

Tuition for the program selected is due by the first session of each term unless alternative arrangements are made with the Financial Services Department.  Payment may be made with check, or money order made payable to Health Care Integrated School Based Health.  Payments should be made in person during regular office hours or mailed and postmarked prior to the due date. Payments made after the due date may be assessed a $15 late payment fee.

Financial Suspension Students’ financial accounts must always be kept current or appropriate arrangements must be made with the Financial Services Department.  Students who fail to make satisfactory arrangements or who default on their financial arrangement are subject to possible suspension or dismissal.

Students who are not in good financial standing with HCISBH, who have not made the aforesaid agreement with the Financial Services Department, or who have not honored the agreement after it was made, may be suspended or withdrawn from HCISBH.  The reinstatement process includes full payment of the delinquent portion of the tuition for readmission.  Official transcripts and certifications will be withheld until the student has either paid the account in full or made satisfactory arrangements to repay.

All expenses incurred by HCISBH to collect delinquent tuition or fees from students will be added to the student account.

Checks that are returned for non-sufficient funds will be assessed a $15 processing fee.  If tuition payments by check are returned more than once for non-sufficient funds during the session of the enrollment agreement, all future payments must be in cash or by money order.  Students who have checks returned to HCISBH, for insufficient funds, closed account, or any other reason, must make arrangements to redeem them with cash, cashier’s check or money order as soon as possible. Students failing to make prompt arrangements may be subject to financial suspension and will be referred to an outside collection agency.
