Get Money for College Classes by Applying for Grants
State and Federal Grants, unlike a loan, do not have to be paid back. Fill out a FAFSA to see if you qualify for either the California Grant (Cal Grant) or Federal Grants (Pell Grants).
The Pell Grants amounts are determined on your FAFSA results, your school's cost of attendance, and your status as a full-time or part-time student.
The Cal Grant has two deadlines: March 2nd and September 2nd. Fill out a FAFSA, then submit your GPA electronically. Undocumented students can also apply by first completing the California Dream Act Application online by March 2nd. Learn more about how to apply for a Cal Grant.
