A Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADAA) allows students to be considered for federal aid (FAFSA applicants only), state aid, institutional aid, and loans.

Starting in the 2022-23 academic school year, high schools, and school districts (Local Educational Agencies) will need to ensure that all 12th graders in the state of California complete a FAFSA or CA Dream Act Application, unless the student has formally submitted an opt-out waiver. The goal of “All In for FAFSA/CA Dream Act ” is to expand access to financial aid to thousands of students who may have otherwise not been aware of these opportunities.
