Financial Aid

At Diablo Valley College, we want to make sure that no student feels they cannot attend because of cost. There are many options available to students who need partial or full financial aid. The mission of the Financial Aid Office is to inform all students of financial aid programs and provide financial aid assistance to eligible students in a timely, professional, and supportive manner.

The Financial Aid Office is open for remote services

The Financial Aid Office remains closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the office is OPEN for remote and online services.
