    Students who are experiencing financial hardships due to the COVID-19 pandemic should submit a 2021-2022 FAFSA or CA Dream Application and select SJCC as the school of attendance.  Application for the Emergency funding will be available shortly after the Spring 2022 census date and will be sent to all SJCC students via email.
