Cal Grant Secondary Deadline
There is no fee to apply for a Cal Grant.

Submit your 2016–2017 FAFSA Renewal online at www.fafsa.ed.gov no later than Sept. 2 if you'll be attending college after Spring Quarter 2016. Cal Grant eligibility could add up to $1,656 to your Foothill College financial aid award. Cal Grant awards do not have to be paid back.

If you did not submit Cal Grant application materials by the priority deadline (March 2, 2016), there is a secondary deadline, specifically for California Community College students on Sept. 2. Submit the required forms before the deadline to be considered for this specific Cal Grant. Be aware that there will be a limited number of these grants available.

Upon transfer to a California four-year college or university, you may receive up to $12,240 in addition to the basic $1,656 award. There are three different Cal Grants: Cal Grant A, B and C.

  • Cal Grant A pays for tuition and fees at a four-year institution. Eligible students may place the award on reserve for up to two years while attending community college;

  • The student who is awarded Cal Grant B may receive the living allowance ($1,656) at community college; upon transfer to a four-year institution, he/she continues to receive the living allowance plus the tuition award in the same amount as the Cal Grant A;

  • Cal Grant C recipients must be enrolled in a vocational or technical program and receive $547 per year for a maximum of two years; and

  • Restrictions apply. Award amounts are subject to change.

Cal Grants are funded by the state with a small portion of funding from the Federal Government through the Leveraging Educational Assistance Partnership Program (LEAP).

You are responsible for taking all assigned final examinations. Your instructor will provide details on the final exam in your class. Final examinations are given in all Foothill courses, and will normally not be given in advance of the scheduled exam time. Review the final exam schedule and plan accordingly.

Final grades are submitted by faculty the week after final exams. Final grades are then available to view via your MyPortal.fhda.edu account, as well as posted to your transcript approximately three weeks after the last day of final examinations.

Be aware that several "roll up" steps must occur before final grades and calculation of GPAs are available for you to view via your MyPortal.fhda.edu account. Once the "roll up" process is complete, you may log in to MyPortal.fhda.edu to view grades via the View Grades and Unofficial Transcript links on the MyPortal Students tab.
