Financial Aid Services


student aidFrom October 1st until March 2nd, students applying for financial aid must complete and submit their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Cal-SOAP aims to assist students, and their parents, in the often complex and confusing process of applying for financial aid.

Cal-SOAP hosts “Cash for College” workshops October through February at participating high school sites, to assist with FAFSA, DREAM Act, and CSS Profile completion. Financial Aid professionals bring their expertise to the computer lab, answering questions and helping fill out the on-line applications. Every student is eligible to attend our free workshops.

Aside from the “Cash for College” workshops, Cal-SOAP staff is available, by appointment, to work individually with the students and parents who want additional help with the financial aid and scholarship process. There are many opportunities for students to received financial aid; so come and see us and we’ll get you prepared.
