Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Apply?
The application process for all federal, state, and college financial aid programs begins by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available on line at www.fafsa.ed.gov and at all colleges, universities, and high schools. By completing the FAFSA you will be considered for the Federal Pell Grant, State Cal Grants A, B or C, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Federal Work Study (FWS), Board or Governor's Fee Waiver (BOGW), Federal Perkins Loan, and Federal Stafford Student Loan programs.
CAL GRANT APPLICANTS
New Cal Grant applicants must complete the GPA Verification Form in addition to the FAFSA. The GPA Verification Form must be submitted to your high school or college to verify your grade point average and mailed to the California Student Aid Commission with a postmark date no later than March 2. If you are currently receiving a Cal Grant, complete only the FAFSA - do not complete the GPA Verification form.
