Key Dates

Oct. 1

March 2

  • March 2, is the priority financial aid filing deadline for most colleges and universities and the absolute deadline for submission of your Cal Grant application (CA Dream Act Application + GPA)
  • If you or your school submits your certified GPA using your DACA SSN, make sure you include that DACA SSN on question #8 of your CA Dream Act Application
  • Better yet, submit a Non-SSN GPA to the CA Student Aid Commission
