FAFSA/DREAM Act Application
A new FAFSA/Dream Application must be filed every year starting October 1st. The Cal Grant deadline (through the FAFSA/Dream Act Application) is March 2nd of every year. It is one application to apply for a Pell Grant, a Cal Grant, and Fee Waiver and it is by completing the FAFSA. Please read more on Cal Grants.
2022-2023 FAFSA is for a Fee Waiver for summer 2022, fall 2022, & spring 2023, Pell grant for fall 2022, spring 2023, summer 2023 (if eligible)
2023-2024 applications available October 01, 2022. The Cal Grant deadline is March 2nd of every year. If you miss the deadline, you should still continue to fill out and submit the Federal FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or state CADAA (CA Dream Act Application).
AB 540 (Undocumented) Students
If you are completing the DREAM Act Application, it must be submitted no later than March 2 of each year. But if you missed the March 2 Cal Grant deadline, you can still file the application to find out if you are eligible for a Fee Waiver or Cal Grant.
ATTENTION! Did your (or your family’s) income drop significantly in 2021 due to Covid or other reasons? If so consider filing a Special Circumstance/EFC Appeal AFTER we receive your initial 2022-2023 FAFSA results, or speak to a financial aid advisor. This allows us to reduce your FAFSA income so that you may qualify for financial aid, or for additional aid, based on your more recent financial situation instead of relying on 2020 information.
CCPG Fee Waiver Information
The California College Promise Grant for California Residents (formerly known as the BOG Fee Waiver) helps eligible students with tuition ($46 per unit). Link to Application and details.

Year-Round Pell Grants
The U.S. Department of Education has recently implemented Year-Round Pell Grants, allowing students to receive up to 150% of a regular grant award over the course of the academic year (fall, spring, and summer) so that they can continue taking classes in the summer and finish their degrees faster than they would otherwise.
Summer Financial Aid
Students can apply for financial aid for summer 2022-2023. Submit both 2022-2023 (use 2020 taxes) and 2023-2024 (use 2021 taxes) FAFSA or CADAA to be considered for aid. The Pell grant (if eligible) comes from the 2022-2023 FAFSA and the Fee Waiver for summer comes from the 2023-2024 FAFSA. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Students must follow the Financial Aid Steps to be considered for all forms of financial aid for the summer.
Please visit our Important Dates and Deadlines website for details.
Planning to transfer to a 4-year College, please read about the State University Grant Program.
State University Grant (SUG) Program
The State University Grant (SUG) program provides need-based awards to eligible undergraduate and graduate/postbaccalaureate students who are California residents or otherwise determined as eligible, such as AB 540-eligible students. When you apply for financial aid via the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act application (CADA) you are considered for a SUG by your campus.
Systemwide, the priority is to award a SUG at least equal to the amount of the State University Fee ($5,742 for undergraduates; $6,660 for students in teaching credential programs; and $7,176 for graduate and postbaccalaureate students) to eligible students who apply for financial aid by March 2; who have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $4,000 or less; and who are not receiving a Cal Grant or other award designated to cover fees.
The number of units a student has earned also affects SUG eligibility. Undergraduates in most programs may receive SUG for up to 150 units.
Transfer students are reviewed for eligibility based on the number of units transferred. Graduate and credential students are also limited based on their program length. Each CSU campus has established local awarding policies and priorities for these funds.

If you cannot find your Financial Aid Information on the Zone or CLASS-Web.
Reasons may be:
- You have NOT completed your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or DREAM Act Application or you may have completed the incorrect aid year
- You have NOT entered our College/ Federal School Code (030357) in your submitted FAFSA or DREAM Act Application
- You have completed your FAFSA but we have NOT received it. It takes approximately 7-10 days after your FAFSA submission for us to retrieve your information (The DREAM Act Application takes much longer.)
Always double check:
- Make sure you have completed the correct FAFSA for the appropriate Financial Aid Year.
- Submit your FAFSA by using your FSA ID
