Cal Grant Information
The California Student Aid Commission offers financial aid in the form of Cal Grants to eligible students. A Cal Grant is money for college you don’t have to pay back. The California Student Aid Commission requires high schools to submit all 12th graders Grade Point Averages by October 1 each year unless guardians choose to opt out. If you would like to opt out of this process and you understand that your student will no longer be eligible for a Cal Grant, please make an appointment to see your student’s high school counselor to complete an opt-out form. Please click here for more information on how to opt out.
Submit your FAFSA! Students will use earlier income information. Beginning with the 2017-18 FAFSA, students will be required to report income information from an earlier tax year. For example, on the 2017-18 FAFSA, students (and parents, as appropriate) will report their 2016 income information, rather than their 2017 income information
