From October 1st until March 2nd, students applying for financial aid must complete and submit either their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or their California Dream Act Application (CADAA). Cal-SOAP aims to assist students and their parents in the extensive 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, CADAA, and CSS Profile completion. Financial Aid professionals bring their expertise to the computer lab by answering questions and helping fill out the on-line applications. Every student is eligible to attend our free workshops.
Cal-SOAP staff are 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 receive financial aid so come and see us and we’ll get you prepared!
