College Information

FAFSA application opens October 1st each year. There is not a separate application to apply for Cal Grant. The State of California will pull the information from FAFSA to determine Cal Grant Status. Deadline to file for FAFSA is March 2, 2021 but you are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to determine your financial aid status for college applications. It is recommended you apply for FAFSA even if you feel you won’t qualify. Colleges and universities use this information to determine your eligibility for financial aid and scholarships available at their campuses.
