Financial Aid Resources
See below for scholarship resources.
Financial Aid - Need Based Money
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the core application for all federal and state, as well as most college aid.
FAFSA4caster, an online tool, at www.federalstudentaid.ed.gov, allows students to estimate eligibility prior to their senior year.
The easiest and quickest way to apply, including step-by-step instructions, is by using FAFSA on the web at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Visit the web before 8 a.m. and after 8 p.m. PST to expedite assistance.
The 2017-18 FAFSA will now be available on October 1, 2016. In addition, you will be reporting your income based on prior-prior year tax information when completing the FAFSA. For example, for a 2017-18 FAFSA, your income will be based on 2015 taxes. Students and one parent will need to apply for a PIN at www.pin.ed.gov in order to sign electronically.
Students who prefer to do a rough draft can complete the FAFSA on the Web worksheet at www.fafsa.ed.gov/. Call 1-800-433-3243 for additional help in filling out the form.
CAL GRANTS are funded by CA and are the source of free $$.
Our registrar will upload GPA information for current seniors to the Cal Grant system prior to the March 2, Deadline. Current seniors DO NOT need to complete a Cal Grant GPA Verification Form. If you have any questions regarding the Cal Grant process, please refer to the California Student Aid Commission website where you can create an account and track your Cal-Grant status.

CAL Grants consider academic GPA, and awards assist students pursuing further education at four year, community college, and occupational/technical sites. A FAFSA must be completed by March 2 to apply for a CAL GRANT. Learn more about the CAL Grant program at www.csac.ca.gov.
Financial Aid - Merit Based Money
Scholarships recognize academic or athletic achievement, intended areas of study or career, demonstrated leadership, talent, heritage, and community service. Updated listings are posted on Student's Naviance Family Connection accounts.
Thoroughly complete each scholarship application, and check with individual college financial aid offices and major departments for additional scholarship opportunities.
