News Coverage

We want to make sure everyone in California knows that financial aid is available year-round at our state’s community colleges. That’s why we are working with television, radio, print and online media outlets to get the word out. You may have seen, heard or read stories about your local community college, the types of financial aid available, and how aid money can help make your higher education dreams a reality. If you haven’t seen or heard anything, but you want to learn more, follow the links below to some recent articles about the “I Can Afford College” campaign.  In the coming months, we’ll be building out this section with additional press materials and news coverage about the campaign, so be sure to check back for more information.
