Financial Aid Deadlines Coming Up
Scholarship Money Available–Apply Now!
If you could use some extra money for college, here are two important dates to remember:
- Friday, Feb. 18, is the deadline to apply for scholarships this year
- Wednesday, March 2, is the deadline to submit the FAFSA or CADAA to qualify for a CalGrant
You can use the AcademicWorks online system to search and apply for a variety of scholarships that might be a good match for you. Just log in with your Campuswide ID and MyPortal password, or click on the AcademicWorks tile in the Apps section of MyPortal.
And don't forget to submit the FAFSA application by March 2 to qualify for a Cal Grant next year. Undocumented students should submit the California Dream Act Application by March 2.
If you have questions or need assistance, the Financial Aid Office is here for you. You can use the online contact form or speak with a representative on Zoom or in person – check the Financial Aid website for office hours and Zoom links.
The Financial Aid Office also offers workshops via Zoom on a number of topics, including workshops this month on "How to Find and Apply for Scholarships.” Check the Financial Aid Workshops webpage for a complete list of topics, dates and times, and links to register for these sessions. More workshops will be added in coming weeks.
Sometimes students think they aren't eligible for financial aid, but it turns out they are. The best way to find out for sure is to go ahead and apply!
