Financial Aid Information
While attending a college, university or technical school can be expensive, there are resources available to you and your family. While most programs expect you and your family to contribute some money toward your education, financial aid can provide money to assist you and the high costs of post-secondary education. Read below to get more information about financial aid:
FAFSA: (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
This application is required to be eligible for all financial aid and should be completed during the student's senior year. There are different deadlines, but the California deadline is March 2nd . It should be completed on-line using the website: www.fafsa.ed.gov. The FAFSA application will ask you questions about your family's finances and college plans. You also should list all of your colleges on the FAFSA, so they will receive your information. Please see the file below to learn more about the FAFSA.
California Dream Application: Students who do not have Social Security Numbers or have a DACA number can still apply for financial aid in the State of California. They will apply through the California Dream Application: https://dream.csac.ca.gov/ . Students might be eligible for monies from the state of California and the universities/colleges they apply to. For more information, see Ms. Flores in the College Center.
The CSS Profile is a separate financial aid application that is required for many out-of-state and private universities. You can go to https://profileonline.collegeboard.com/prf/index.jsp to see which universities require the Profile and what the deadlines are.
