Submit your 2013-2014 FAFSA Renewal online at www.fafsa.ed.gov no later than Sept. 3 if you'll be attending college after Spring Quarter 2013. Cal Grant eligibility could add up to $1,473 to your Foothill College financial aid award.
Cal Grants are funded by the state with a small portion of funding from the Federal Government through the Leveraging Educational Assistance Partnership Program (LEAP). Cal Grant awards do not have to be paid back.
If you did not submit Cal Grant application materials by the priority deadline (March 2, 2013), there is a secondary deadline, specifically for California Community College students on Sept. 3. Submit the required forms before the Sept. 3 deadline to be considered for this specific Cal Grant. Be aware that there will be a limited number of these grants available.
Upon transfer to a California four-year college or university, you may receive up to $12,192 in addition to the basic $1,473 award. There are three different Cal Grants: Cal Grant A, B and C.
Be an Informed Consumer: There is never a fee to fill out or submit the FAFSA. You do not need to pay for the FAFSA or to have it completed for you.
