Virtual FAFSA/CADAA Info. Session

The most significant changes to financial aid in almost 40 years are coming during the 2024/2025 application cycle — and we want to continue fostering communication with our campus community regarding these changes.

To keep you informed, the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office is hosting virtual information sessions regarding updates to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the California Dream Act Application (CADAA) as well as the methodologies that determine eligibility. The sessions will provide insight into major application changes, updated terminology and anticipated impact to our students and programs. For these reasons we are encouraging all staff and faculty who work directly with students — or have an interest in this information — to register and attend.

FAFSA/CADAA information sessions will be held on the following dates/times — Please register for one today. Click Here to register
