Cal Grant OPT OUT Form

Cal Grant OPT OUT Form
Cal Grant Awards are free money provided by the State of California to help pay for the cost
of college. Graduating high school seniors who meet academic, financial and eligibility
requirements may qualify to receive a Cal Grant.
To be considered for a Cal Grant award, the following requirements must be met:
1) The 2015-2016 FAFSA Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be
completed by parent/guardian with the Federal processor at by
the March 2, 2016 deadline.
2) Your High School must submit a certified Grade Point Average (GPA) to the California
Student Aid Commission by March 2, 2016
Cal Grant GPAs will be accepted only if certified by a school electronically. The fastest and most
secure way for a student to submit a Cal Grant GPA is to have the high school electronically
upload the GPA directly to the California Student Aid Commission’s system.
If you OPT OUT from your child’s electronic submission, he/she will NOT receive
the Cal Grant. To OPT OUT, complete the form and return it to the Registrar’s
Office by January 29, 2016. If not received, your information will be uploaded.

As a parent/guardian, I am exercising the right to “opt-out” and request that you DO
NOT electronically submit my student’s information to the California Student Aid Commission
for Cal Grant consideration. I realize that by opting out, my student will not be considered for
a Cal Grant award.
