Seven Steps to Financial Aid

Awarding and To-Do List Items 

  • Financial aid award is based on the submission and completion of To-Do List items posted in a student's MySJSU.
  • Only students selected for verification will have items posted in their MySJSU and are required to submit To-Do List Items to begin the evaluation process which leads to financial aid award.
  • Students NOT selected for verification will NOT have documents assigned in their To-Do List, but should monitor their MySJSU for any changes.

Awarding for the 2018-19 academic year will begin as follows:

  • Fall 2018 admitted students: beginning in early March
  • Continuing (currently enrolled) students: beginning in July.


Priority filing date

The priority filing date, and the California Student Aid Commission's (CSAC) GPA verification deadline date for Cal Grant consideration is always: 

March 2

  • Missed March 2 priority filing deadline? You can still apply!
  • Due to limited funding availability, you must submit your FAFSA/Dream Act application in early October (as soon as the application(s) is available) to be considered for priority funding.
  • Each award year, the priority filing deadling date may change based on fund(s) availability and applicant pool.
