The California Community Colleges Chancellor's Office (CCCCO) has recognized that there is a significant deficit regarding youth from foster care attending higher education. Acknowledging this need, they are sponsoring a concerted effort called the Foster Youth Success Initiative (FYSI). One of the goals of this initiative is to provide students with direct access to campus and community resources that will help guide students through the college enrollment process, and to connect them to support services that can assist them in succeeding in college, thus making the transition from foster care to independent living much smoother.
Students who are awarded financial aid and are eligible for a Federal Pell Grant may qualify for advanced funds for the purchase of textbooks at the College of the Canyons Bookstore.
Financial Aid is available to AB540 students at College of the Canyons.
