Disbursement Options

Deduction of Fees

Financial Aid (grants, federal student loans, and scholarships) will first be used to reduce current institutional debt you owe to Skyline College, College of San Mateo, or Cañada College, including enrollment fees, health fees, and nonresident tuition. If your financial aid is more than the amount owed, you will be paid the remaining balance.
