Cal Grant Awards are free money provided by the State of California to help pay for the cost of college. Pacific View Charter School now submits all senior GPA’s online for the Cal Grant to the California Student Aid Commission. Your student does not have to worry about submitting a Cal Grant GPA Verification Form since we will electronically submit their GPAs.
Your student’s Cal Grant GPA will be matched to several data points on the FAFSA Application such as name, date of birth, school code, and address. It is very important that the way your information is listed on the FAFSA matches our school records, such as full legal name, home address etc. If it doesn’t match it is the student’s responsibility to contact CSAC to get the information fixed.
We encourage you and your student to visit the CSAC website at www.webgrants4students.org to create an account that allows you to check the status of your Cal Grant GPA submission.
The FAFSA and Cal Grant deadline is Wednesday, March 2nd. If you have any questions pertaining to Cal Grants please contact the California Student Aid Commission directly. Their number is 1-888-224-7268 and their office hours are 8:00 am to 4:45 pm.
- What if I don’t want my student’s GPA to be sent to the California Student Aid Commission?
If you choose to not have your student’s GPA sent your student will not be considered for a Cal Grant award. If you don’t want your student’s GPA sent please request the “opt-out form” and return to your supervisory teacher. It’s your responsibility to pick-up the form and return.
