ICUC Financial Aid Workshops and Resources
As a part of ICUC’s parent and student engagement, local organizing committees (LOCs) partner with local public higher education institutions California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB) and San Bernardino Valley College (SBVC) to provide families with important information and resources for college. This information includes navigating access to financial aid.
