Step 1

完成2021-22年度联邦学生资助免费申请(FAFSA) online.

  • Gather your information.
    • 您和您的父母/监护人的社会保险号码和驾驶执照号码. 如果你被认为是一个独立的学生,不需要父母的信息. 
    • 前两年的纳税申报表或W-2(或其他收入记录). For the 2021-22 FAFSA, you will use your 2019 tax return. For the most efficient processing, use the IRS data retrieval tool (DRT), to automatically import your tax return information.
  • Apply for your FSA ID (if you do not already have one).
    Students and parents require separate FSA IDs.
  • 登记服兵役(如果你是26岁以下的男性).
    在提交FAFSA时,你需要确认你已经注册了选择性服务. If you have a valid Social Security number, you can register online. If not, you will need to register in-person at any U.S. Post Office. 如果你没有被要求注册,请将你的证明文件提交到 Student Financial Services office.
  • Submit your FAFSA.
    Submit your FAFSA 在10月1日至3月2日期间,优先考虑下一学年的申请. Enter 皇冠体育 School Code: 001262.

    Undocumented students should complete the California Dream Act Application (CADAA). For students completing the CADAA, you must also complete the California Dream Student, Affidavit Form, and submit all required documentation to Student Financial Services

    ** Be sure to use your legal name for all documents.
  • Submit your GPA.

    Undergraduate Students only — If you are a California resident, you must submit your Cal Grant GPA Verification Form (required for Cal Grant) by March 2. 大多数社区大学和加州高中以电子方式提交学生的gpa申请加州助学金. Check with your school to make sure. **如果您在上一学年获得了Cal Grant,则不需要填写此表格.

Step 3

Complete Required Documents.

    你需要在网上完成学生贷款入学咨询 studentaid.gov. 经济援助将不会支付,直到你完成了你的入学咨询.
  • Master Promissory Note (Loan Agreement) 

    签署你的主本票(MPN)资助和非资助贷款. If applicable, 完成直接家长PLUS贷款或研究生/专业学生直接PLUS贷款. 注意:在您完成贷款协议(MPN)之前,您的经济援助将不会发放。. **如果你最近在过去10年内在以前的机构完成了MPN, notify the Student Financial Services office (gpssfs@coilersplus.com) as you may not be required to complete an updated MPN. 

Step 4

Submit verification documents.

When reviewing your Student Aid Report (SAR) you may see a note saying you’ve been selected for verification; or the Student Financial Services office will notify you that you’ve been selected. The U.S. 教育部随机选择已经完成FAFSA的学生进行一个称为验证的过程. 此过程用于确认FAFSA上报告的数据是否准确. In order to process your financial aid, 你必须向学生金融服务中心提交所需的文件. 

皇冠体育与Inceptia合作,使学生和家长更容易获得联邦财政援助. 验证网关是一个经批准的第三方服务机构,帮助皇冠体育收集教育部选择的任何学生所需的所有文件.
