Cal Grants has created a great checklist to keep you on track for financial aid. Check it out here!
College entrance exams: SAT and ACT
Take end of junior year and if necessary, in October or November of senior year. These cost approximately $55 each to take. Put your college choices on your SAT and ACT registration so they will receive your scores.
You must be A-G ready to be admitted to a four-year college or university right after high school! Any D’s or F’s received in high school A-G classes must be repeated with a C or better. See your counselor.
You do not have to be A-G ready to be admitted to a community college.
Apply to college during October and November of your senior year. Applications cost $55 to $75 each.
Put your college choices on your FAFSA application, Cal Grant and/or Dream Act applications.
