Senior Year Financial Aid Timeline


Apply for a social security number if you have not already done so. You will need the number for financial aid and/or college admission. Pick up a PROFILE registration form from the Student Services Office to apply for financial aid from private colleges only. Check the PROFILE form for the list of colleges that require this form.

Even if you feel that you do not qualify for needs based financial aid, complete the application form and submit it so that the school can make that decision


Pick up the FAFSA and GPA Verification forms from the Student Services Office

Begin filling out the forms. The FAFSA cannot be mailed before January 1st, but should be mailed as soon as possible after that date. The GPA Verification form has a deadline of March 2nd.


Continue working on the FAFSA and GPA Verification forms and any other financial aid application forms

Be sure to use the same version of your name on all forms

When completed, make a copy of all forms for your records. When it is time to renew, much of the information may be the same.

Request a “certificate of mailing” from the post office. If your forms are lost in the mail, the financial aid offices will allow you to submit a duplicate form if you have a receipt.

MAIL EARLY in January. DO NOT WAIT until the March deadline

Begin checking the scholarship board in the Student Services office on a regular basis


If you have not done so already, mail all forms! The mailing deadline for the FAFSA and GP Verification form (for Cal grant Eligibility) is March 2nd
