Complete your FAFSA/CADAA Application!

This is the first and most important step to take in order to receive money for college. These applications are used to determine your eligibility for state and school aid. It also qualifies students for TWO YEARS OF FREE TUITION at our local community colleges. It can also open up opportunities for scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study options.

Step 1: FAFSA/CADAA Checklist (list of items you will need to prepare prior to completing the FAFSA/CADAA).
Step 2: Create an FSA ID (Both the student and at least one parent need to create an FSA ID).

Step 3: Apply for the FAFSA. (On your own or with help from Ms. Dewater in the CCC)

What is the CADAA?
The California Dream Act Application allows undocumented and nonresident students (U.S. Citizens and eligible non-citizens) who qualify for a non-resident exemption under Assembly Bill 540 (AB 540) to receive certain types of financial aid. It also allows eligible students to pay in-state tuition at any public college in California.
This application is unrelated to the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
