A first-time college student (you've never taken a college course) 2 years of free tuition
A recent high school graduate 1-2 years of free tuition + free books and no fees in the 1st year
A recent high school graduate who plans on taking at least 9 units or more each semester?

1 year free tuition and free books and no fees in the 1st year

A recent high school graduate who plans on taking at least 12 units or more each semester?

*In addition to being a first-time college student or recent high school graduate, eligibility is based on being enrolled in 9 or more units. Eligibility is not dependent on financial need. Students are asked to complete a FAFSA or California DREAM Act so that Coastline can determine what other financial and support resources they might be eligible for.

HEERF I, II & III - Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students

The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) I, II and III were passed by Congress and signed into law. The President signed HEERF I into law on March 27, 2020, HEERF II on December 27, 2020, and HEERF III on March 11, 2021 to provide economic relief for students due to COVID-19. The law establishes fundings for schools to provide emergency financial aid grants to students. The grants may be used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care), or childcare.
