Dear Students,

Financial aid applicants for the 2024-25 aid year will continue to see delays with the processing of the financial aid application, as this is a nationwide challenge affecting students. The financial aid office is working diligently to alleviate concerns from our students and begin processing awards as soon as possible. Students will not be dropped for non-payment while we continue to update systems to provide financial aid offers, including the fee waiver. Once the system is ready to process financial aid applications, notification to students will be provided. We will begin dropping students ten days after this has been resolved.

Students who submit a 2024-25 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or a 2024-25 California Dream Act Application (CADAA) by May 2, 2024, will be considered on time for Cal Grant.

Additional updates will be provided on our website and to students as they come forth.
