Seniors & Families: Financial Aid InformationTop of Page

  • FAFSA: Seniors who are US citizens or eligible noncitizens should submit the FAFSA. It opens October 1, 2016 and is due March 2, 2017 (at the latest). It is very wise for every eligible senior to complete the FAFSA to receive assistance for community colleges or four-year colleges. Begin by making an FSA ID for you and have a parent create an FSA ID if s/he does not have one.
  • Step 1. Create FSA ID Step 2. Complete FAFSA
CA Dream Act Application: Seniors who do not meet the criteria to complete the FAFSA should complete the California Dream Act application. It is required if you'd like to receive aid to attend community colleges or four-year colleges in California. For maximum results, submit by March 2, 2017.

After You Have Completed Your FAFSA or CADAA: Seniors planning to attend college in California should make a Web Grants 4 College account to see if you qualify for a Cal Grant and/or change the college that will receive your Cal Grant. Your eligibility is determined by your A-G GPA (3rd GPA on your transcript), family size, and income. If you need to make a correction or appeal your eligibility, stop by the College and Career Center for help.
Students applying to colleges that require additional financial information may need to complete the CSS Profile by the deadline provided by each participating college.
