Financial Aid and Scholarships

FAFSA/CA Dream Act Workshops

2023-24 FAFSA & California DREAM Act Workshops

The 2023-24 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and California Dream Act Application are now available!

Have Questions or Need Help Filling out Your FAFSA or DREAM Act Application?
A Financial Aid & Scholarships representative is available to help. Join us in person or virtually during any of the workshops listed below. Additional assistance is available by contacting us during regular business hours.

Any CPP student who wishes to be considered for financial aid for the 2023-24 academic year should apply NOW, but no later than the March 2, 2023 priority filing deadline.

The FAFSA is the aid application for federal and state grants, loans, and work study. Students who cannot apply for federal student aid but are eligible for California student aid programs under AB 540 can file a CA Dream Act application. Both applications are free!

For either application, you’ll use your and/or your parents' 2021 tax information and CPP’s school code (001144).
