CLC is approved by the U.S. Department of Education to offer federal student aid in most of our degree programs. Because of our more affordable tuition, CLC students are able to graduate without large amounts of student debt to repay. If you qualify for and accept federal student aid, it will cover most, if not all, of your direct education expenses.
The college offers accelerated hybrid programs to help you earn a degree in less than two years.
We are accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools and we are approved by the California State Approving Agency for Veterans Education (CSAAVE) for students to use their GI Bill education benefits at our Sherman Oaks, CA campus.

CARES HEERF RECIPIENT FUNDING REQUEST AND CERTIFICATION
The Federal government, under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, specifically from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), has made available funding to be awarded to students, who have been negatively impacted by the Coronavirus/COVID – 19 global pandemic.
These funds are being made available to assist students whose education-related expenses have been impacted, such as food, housing, healthcare, and child-care, because of the Coronavirus/COVID -19 global pandemic.
If you have been negatively impacted by the Coronavirus/COVID -19 global pandemic in any of the above named areas, please complete this form (be sure to give names, dates, monetary amounts, etc.) and submit it along with any and all documentation to support your claim. Your information will be evaluated, and you will be notified of whether or not, you have been awarded funds and the amount you will receive. Thank you.
I understand, submitting false or misleading information could lead to a $20,000.00 fine, five (5) years in jail and having to pay back any funding received, and certify under penalty of perjury, the above statement and submitted documentation is true and correct to the best of my knowledge.
As of the above date, Casa Loma College has received the student portion of the CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act/HEERF (Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund funds, in the amount of $253,255.00. The neediest students, as determined by a zero (“0”) EFC on their most recent FAFSA application, who do the following:
- Complete the CARES HEERF Recipient Funding Request and Certification form, and
- Supply supporting documentation regarding the information on the form, and
- Are approved;
will receive an award amount of $6,345.00. There are approximately fifty (50) students who meet the zero (“0”) EFC criteria, therefore there are not enough funds to distribute to all fifty (50) of those students. Based on the funds received, the College will have the ability to award approximately thirty-nine (39) students, therefore these funds will be awarded on a “first come – first served” basis. If there are funds remaining after all zero (“0”) EFC students have been awarded, further awards will be made based on an upward sliding EFC scale. This means students having EFC’s above zero will be awarded next. The higher the EFC, the less chance the student will have to be awarded funds.
