Financial Aid Support for College-Bound Students – WAEF
Starting with the 2022-2023 school year, AB 469 requires high schools to ensure grade 12 students submit a FAFSA or CADAA before graduating.
Seniors can launch their FAFSA or CADAA through their accounts.
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
Financial Aid applications can usually be submitted from October 1st - March 2nd of every year, but after over 40 years, the financial aid application is getting simplified! The new FAFSA application will be released later than usual.
UPDATE: For the Class of 2024, applications will tentatively open December 31, 2023.  Priority deadline is extended to April 2, 2024! 
Class of 2024 will fill out the 2024 - 2025 FAFSA/CADAA. Families will use 2022 tax records. 
Community College students may apply until September 2nd. The earlier you apply the better!

Dream Act Application (AB 130 and AB 131)
This is the financial aid application for AB 540 eligible students. To qualify students must meet additional requirements.
AB 540
Allows qualified undocumented students to be exempt from paying significantly higher out-of-state tuition at public colleges and universities in California. U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents also qualify for AB 540. Students must fill out the AB 540 form at the college or university they will attend during their senior year of high school. AB 540 is accepted for qualifying students at CA community colleges, Cal States and UCs. Qualifying for AB 540 does not change a student’s immigration or residency status or provide access to any federal or state financial aid.
