File your FAFSA or CADAA application by March 2, 2023!

Steps to Completing Your Financial Aid Application:

1. FAFSA Applicants only: Get TWO FSA IDs in total. One for you and one for a parent (just one). Even if you have more than one parent, only ONE of them creates an FSA ID.

**Not sure who is considered a “parent” for the purposes of FAFSA/CADAA? Use this chart (click here) as a guide.

2. Begin your FAFSA (click here) OR CA Dream Act Application (click here) for qualified undocumented students. Do NOT do both.

3. Get help completing the application at a "Cash4College" workshop. Click here for dates & locations. Click here for a checklist of what to bring to a Cash 4 College workshop
