FAFSA and California Dream Act were

Due March 2nd, 2022.


What happens if I miss the FAFSA deadlines?

Don’t miss the deadlines. Plan to submit your FAFSA form by the earliest due date for your best chance at financial aid. Missing deadlines takes you out of the running for money you could get. Some states and colleges continue to award aid to FAFSA latecomers, but your chances get much slimmer, and the payout is often lower. If you plan on going to an out of state college, check with their financial aid department. They may have a different FAFSA due date.
