CAL GRANTS INFORMATION

Need Cash for College? You Could Get a Cal Grant.

Cal Grants are one of the smartest ways to get cash for college. For starters, it's money you don't have to pay back. If you're a graduating high school senior or recent graduate, meet academic, financial and eligibility requirements and submit two forms by the Cal Grant deadline, you may receive a Cal Grant!

What is the Cal Grant deadline?
You must apply by March 2 to maximize your opportunity to receive an award.

If you miss the March 2 Cal Grant deadline AND you plan to attend a community college in the fall, you have until September 2 to apply. However, the number of Cal Grant awards is limited.

How Much Money Are We Talking About?
With a Cal Grant you can get up to $12,192 a year to pay for college expenses at any qualifying California college, university or career or technical school in California. Depending on which Cal Grant you get, the money can be used for tuition, room and board, even books and pencils. The best part is, it's yours to keep and you don't have to pay it back.

Here's How to Apply.

Submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) between October 1 and March 2 (September 2 for Community Colleges) and submit a verified Cal Grant GPA anytime between October and the March 2 deadline. If you meet the income, eligibility, and GPA requirements, the cash is yours. The best part is, you can fill out the FAFSA online.

To submit a verified Cal Grant GPA, first check with your school to see if they do it automatically or will do it for you online.  If not, you can go online and download a GPA Verification form, fill out the student section and take it to your school.

Please be advised that any Cal Grant award is tentative and subject to final approval of the State Budget Act.
