Financial aid can significantly reduce the cost of college.

But all too often, millions of dollars in aid remain unallocated.

Less than 60% of California’s high school seniors completed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) last year representing a 6 percent decline in completion rates from the 2019-20 school year. Even more alarming were the drops in FAFSA completion rates among students of color: in high schools serving a majority of students of color (equal to or greater than 40 percent), FAFSA completion rates were down by 9 percent, compared to the 2 percent drop seen in high schools with lower numbers of Black and brown students.

We can do better. We can change these outcomes if we come together as a community to share more accurate information about financial aid and help more students apply.

A Parent’s Guide to Financial Aid features FAFSA and CADAA updates for the 2022-23 award year, information about new legislation impacting financial aid eligibility, an expanded Cal Grant section, and a new tool to help families have early and honest conversations about the cost of college. Please share this resource widely with your networks!
