The State of California seeks to expand access to financial aid to students and families who may otherwise not be aware of the opportunities. Continuing from last academic school year, all 12th grade students and their parents will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act Application (CADAA) per the recently passed California AB 469
Important reasons why you would want to complete the application by April 2, 2024:
  • April 2, 2024, is the priority deadline for Cal Grant consideration
  • Receive priority for money for education, trade school, community college and/or college
  • FAFSA/CADAA may be required for college scholarship consideration
  • Receive financial aid offers from multiple schools before making a decision

If you need support completing your FAFSA or CADAA application, you could attend a FREE Cash for College Workshop offered throughout San Jose. These are organized by the California Student Aid Commision (CSAC) whose mission is to help low-income and first generation college-goers complete the application process so they can access financial aid for education and career/technical training beyond high school.
