Higher education means greater opportunity-the knowledge and skills you gain through education, as well as career and technical training, can be used for the rest of your life. Although finding ways to pay for college can be a daunting task, my office is here to help.
California students and families can virtually attend Cash for College workshops for help completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADAA). Completing the FAFSA allows qualified students to be considered for the greatest amount of financial aid from federal, state, and college sources - and it is free to fill out.
March 2, is the priority financial aid filing deadline for most colleges and universities and the absolute deadline for submission of your Cal Grant application. To learn about your options, and how you can apply, I invite you and your family to attend our upcoming Cash for College webinar in partnership with the Offices of Senator Richard Roth, Assemblymember Jose Medina, and the California Student Aid Commission.
