The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and California Dream Act Application (CADAA) are now available.
You are encouraged to apply even if you don’t think you need financial aid.
Key things to remember:
- Students who are US citizens or eligible non-citizens may complete the FAFSA.
- Students who cannot complete the FAFSA but meet the qualifications for AB540 should complete the CA Dream Act Application.
- The priority deadline to complete the appropriate financial aid application is March 2. The sooner you complete it the more funds are available for distribution. If you apply near the deadline, funds may run out.
Students and parents seeking additional help completing either application for financial aid should attend a Cash 4 College financial aid workshop. Cash 4 College financial aid workshops occur throughout the state of California.
