  • Seniors:  MARCH 2 is the deadline to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Colleges use the FAFSA to award their own grants and scholarships.  Even if you think you are not eligible, you should still apply. Many factors besides income are taken into account to determine eligibility, and submitting the FAFSA will ensure you are considered for every type of financial aid possible!  Go to to complete the FAFSA application.  Go to to complete the California Dream Act Application (CADAA). For help completing your application, register for a California Student Aid Commission webinar or workshop at, You can also go to the Career Center’s website for more information:
