What are some of the typical financial aid application due dates?

Application deadlines are extremely important when it comes to financial aid. Make sure your child does not wait too long to submit any paperwork or turn any of it in late because doing so can reduce your child's chance of receiving financial assistance to help pay for college. Here are some important dates to keep in mind:

January 1

The earliest date the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) can be submitted

March 2

PRIORITY FILING for FAFSA

APPLICATION DEADLINE for Cal Grant A, B, and C

DEADLINE for Grade Point Average (GPA) Verification form

July 1

APPLICATION DEADLINE for FAFSA. You will not get federal aid for the academic year if this application is not completed and turned in on time.

September 2

APPLICATION Deadline for Cal Grant A and B Competitive Awards, set aside for students planning to attend a California Community College.
