Cal Grant is a California-specific financial aid allocation to California active students that does not need to be paid back.

To qualify for a Cal Grant, you must file the FAFSA or California Dream Act Application and verify your high school GPA by March 2. If you already have a current Cal Grant award, you don’t need to complete a GPA verification every year, but you must file the FAFSA or California Dream Act Application annually.

ICOHS College is committed to helping eligible students access financial aid, including Cal Grants, and encourages all students to apply.
