For 2011 new freshmen students who received $9,708 Cal Grant awards, Pacific added an average of an additional $17,500 per student in institutional financial aid. These need-based grants are for low-income and middle-income students who are California residents and attend eligible California colleges and universities.
Cal Grants may only be used at eligible California colleges and universities.
If you are awarded a Cal Grant, you will receive a California Aid Report (CAR) which will show the value of your Cal Grant at Pacific.
Reminder: (Due March 2nd)
In order to be considered for these awards at Pacific, you must file an application for undergraduate admission and the FAFSA. To apply for a Cal Grant, you must also submit a verified Cal Grant GPA to the California Student Aid Commission.
High school students, be sure and check with your high school and determine if:
- Cal Grant GPAs are being sent to the California Student Aid Commission for all seniors at your high school,
- you have to ask your high school to send your individual Cal Grant GPA, or
- you have to fill out the Cal Grant GPA Verification Form and send it in yourself.
