Cal Grant

There are two Cal Grants awarded at SJSU

Cal Grant A 

&

Cal Grant B for Entitlement and Competitive awards

 

Awards are available for up to four years to students pursuing a bachelor's degree, and may be extended an additional year for teaching credential only. 

Eligibility is based on GPA, and financial need. The grant is for undergraduate students who are California resident. The eligibility criteria is established by the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC).

In the awarding process, Cal Grants supersede the State University Grant (SUG), therefore recipients of the Cal Grant cannot be awarded SUG as both grants assist with tuition fees.
