Cal Grants are need-based grants for low-income and middle-income students who are California Residents and attend 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.
In order to be considered for Cal Grant Awards at Pacific, you must:
- File an application for undergraduate admission and file the FAFSA.
- In addition, submit a Cal Grant GPA Verification Form to the California Student Aid Commission by March 3rd.
High school students, be sure and check with your high school and determine if:

- Option 2: Ask your high school to send your individual Cal Grant GPA.
