Financial Aid

Financial Aid is available to help students attend an accredited vocational, community college, or four-year college/university. Completing a FAFSA application gives students the chance to qualify for Pell Grant, Work Study, Grants, and Parent/Student Loans. California student aid includes *Cal Grants, Middle Class Grant, FSEOG Grant, EOP Grant, and Chafee (Foster Youth) Grant.
The deadline to complete FAFSA is March 2 of the student's senior year. Our district submits the Cal Grant GPA on the students behalf.
Requirements for FAFSA:
  • Student must be US Citizen (or eligible non-citizens);
  • Have a valid Social Security Number (DACA is not valid for the FAFSA);
  • Plan to earn a high school diploma or GED;
  • Males must also register with the Selective Service System when required
As of July of 2022, all SUHSD seniors are required to complete either a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or a California Dream Act Application (CADAA). All SUHSD schools are required to account for every graduating senior prior to graduation. While there will be an opportunity to opt-out in the spring, we hope that you will choose to complete your financial aid application. If you have questions about this requirement, please connect with your school counselor. This new requirement is a state mandate AB 469 
DACA Applications
Seniors with DACA or do not have a valid Social Security Number can apply for Cal Grant programs. To apply the student must:
  • Attend a CA high school for at least 3 years; and
  • Plan to graduate from CA high school; and
  • Complete the Dream Act Application by March 2nd of senior year.
After your FAFSA or Dream App has been processed, go to webgrants to create an account to check the status of your Cal Grant.
