The deadline to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California DREAM Act Application (CADAA) has now been extended to May 2, 2024. However, the Department of Education has been unable to send all FAFSA data to institutions. We will send you an email when your Provisional Aid Letter (PAL) is available for your review.

Prospective student aid offers are not expected to be released until late April to early May 2024.

As a reminder, the University of California announced that for the 2024-25 academic year, all nine of its undergraduate campuses will extend their Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) deadline for first-year undergraduate students to May 15 in efforts to support students and their families impacted by current FAFSA delays.
