Cuesta College: Financial Aid Night Presentation - Shared screen with speaker view
what if you graduate a semester early. Can we still get the Promise?
Is the promise grant for community colleges only? or does it apply for California 4 year schools as well?
Where is best place to find the scholarships for the schools you are applying to?
Does Cuesta accept credits from another college towards an Associates degree?
Like The University of Hawaii
Hi Amelie, we do accept units from other colleges
I recommend you submit a official transcript and we can have an evaluator review it
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?
Do you know what the family income limit is for a student to be eligible for federal work study?
Would it be okay to call you to ask for help interpreting our SAR letter from FAFSA?
can I apply for both FAFSA and Cal grant?
To clarify, students have to have a myCuesta student portal in order to access the financial aid zoom help links, correct?
By doing the FAFSA you are applying for both, Federal and State aid.
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.
So, if FAFSA says there’s no unmet need, then a student can’t do federal work study, right?
FAFSA’s definition of a family not needing financial help seems very different from reality!
SSGG Student Success Completion Grant How do you qualify for this?
I came in late! How can I watch the whole event? Thank you
Thank you Christina & Aly!
Thank you for your time! Very informative
Thanks so much!
Do you want to apply for FAFSA before you hear back from a school?
Yeah you should do the fafsa first
does everyone have to complete the ferpa code application?
how do you know if a school has already received your fafsa information?
