The FAFSA is the Federal Application for Student Aid. All Seniors are required to complete this application. Applications will be available to complete in December and need to be filed by April 2nd to obtain a Cal-grant, but are not due until June 1st if attending a community college.
1. You and your parent(s)/guardian(s) will need to create an FSA ID. This counts as your electronic signature to process your FAFSA. This website provides more information about the FSA ID and how to complete it.
2. You will need student's social security number and parent tax returns.
Should your high school student not have a social security number, this may make your student eligible for filing the California Dream Act.
If you need assistance filling this out, see your counselor ASAP.
