2024-25 Financial Aid Applications Delayed
The opening of the 2024-25 FAFSA and CADAA will be December 31 2023.
The Cal Grant priority deadline for the 2024-25 academic year has been extended to April 2, 2024 due to the delayed application opening.
If you or your family’s financial situation has changed significantly from what is reflected on your federal income tax return that was used for completing the current year (2023-2024) FAFSA (for example, you or a parent lost a job or otherwise experienced a drop in income), you may be eligible to have your financial aid eligibility adjusted (increased). To initiate this, please contact the Financial Aid office to discuss how your current financial situation has changed. Note that the school’s decision is final and cannot be appealed to the U.S. Department of Education.
Newest Offerings of Financial Aid
Finish Line Scholars Scholarship and Emergency Grant program provides financial assistance through a scholarship, to eligible students who are on their way toward a finish line goal of transferring to a college or university or completing a certificate or degree. Read qualifications carefully!
- Receive a tuition fee waiver under the California College Promise Grant.
- Have a goal of completion of a certificate or degree program, or transfer to a four-year college or university.
- Take at least 12 units or maintain an alternate full-time equivalent status during all terms in which the scholarship is active.
- Make progress toward goal as indicated by having completed approximately half of the credits required for the program and have a realistic plan to finish the remainder in under 2 academic years.
In addition, students pursuing a degree or transfer must also meet two of these three criteria:

Eligibility criteria for emergency financial aid are separate and different from the scholarship criteria and are not related to your educational goals. Emergency aid is intended to support students facing unexpected or short-term financial barriers that may prevent you from enrolling or staying enrolled in college. No student should be denied based on immigration status.
