Financial Aid Applications

Both the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and California Dream Act Application (CADAA) for the 2024-25 academic year opened December 31, 2023. The priority filing date has been extended to April 2, 2024, for both the FAFSA and CADAA.

CADAA filers will not see changes to the application process, but FAFSA filers will experience the changes resulting from the FAFSA Simplification Act which provides an easier, more streamlined application process for applying for federal financial aid.

Select the appropriate application and aid year to begin.

The 2023-24 FAFSA is for students readmitted/admitted on appeal for winter 2024, spring 2024, and students planning on attending summer 2024.
