what if you graduate a semester early. Can we still get the Promise?
Melissa Tucker
31:45
Is the promise grant for community colleges only? or does it apply for California 4 year schools as well?
Melissa Tucker
32:52
Where is best place to find the scholarships for the schools you are applying to?
Amelie Butkus
33:32
Does Cuesta accept credits from another college towards an Associates degree?
Amelie Butkus
33:53
Like The University of Hawaii
Christina Sholars
35:17
Hi Amelie, we do accept units from other colleges
Christina Sholars
35:36
I recommend you submit a official transcript and we can have an evaluator review it
Aly Aguirre
39:48
The CCPG is for community College only. If you have a Cal-grant A or B, once you transfer to the 4-year school it will pay for the units.

For the Fall 2021 FAFSA what year tax returns will be required? 2019?
Amalia Eulate
41:22
Do you know what the family income limit is for a student to be eligible for federal work study?
Amalia Eulate
50:46
Would it be okay to call you to ask for help interpreting our SAR letter from FAFSA?
Ahmed Qandhawi
51:07
can I apply for both FAFSA and Cal grant?
Ally Dexter
51:15
To clarify, students have to have a myCuesta student portal in order to access the financial aid zoom help links, correct?
Aly Aguirre
54:50
By doing the FAFSA you are applying for both, Federal and State aid.
Amalia Eulate
56:23
Ahmed, I’m just a participant in this Zoom, but I believe you need to fill out the FAFSA first, then create an account for the California grants

@ Lucia- even though there is an Aug 1 deadline for the Cuesta Promise, to have a chance to qualify for additional scholarship $, you have to complete the scholarship application (step 2) by March 2nd.
Amalia Eulate
01:08:59
So, if FAFSA says there’s no unmet need, then a student can’t do federal work study, right?
Amalia Eulate
01:10:46
FAFSA’s definition of a family not needing financial help seems very different from reality!
Lauri Rainwater-Quinn
01:12:05

Do you want to apply for FAFSA before you hear back from a school?
Amalia Eulate

Yeah you should do the fafsa first
Lucia Landeros
01:34:46

Lucia Landeros
01:35:55
