Financial Aid

Student Financial Aid

Helping hands in tough times!

Federal PELL grants available to eligible students.

If you are interested in Financial Aid please fill out the 2020-2021 FAFSA at Our school code: 012522.

Hacienda La Puente Adult education offers grants to full-time, part-time and in some cases less than part-time students. Most financial aid resources are intended to supplement, not replace, the financial resource of the family.

We have financial aid available to help you with the cost of education, which includes fees, books, supplies, miscellaneous cost, housing, and transportation.

Please be aware that because of the rising cost of our fees over recent years, most Student Aid may need to pay for fees and leave very little to help out with other related expenses such as books or transportation, etc.
