Special Alert to Cal Grant students

The California Student Aid Commission warns students of scams targeting Cal Grant students. There have been reports by students that they have been contacted by individuals claiming to be from the Commission who tell the student that they must pay money to receive, or reserve, their Cal Grant award. THIS IS NOT TRUE.

The Commission and its staff never ask for money or credit card information in order for a student to receive his or her Cal Grant award. A Cal Grant is free money, and students are never charged when applying for one using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the California Dream Act Application.

Please disregard these calls (or e-mails), and alert authorities immediately if contacted. If you believe you have been a target or a victim of financial aid fraud, please contact the Commission. You may also wish to file a report with your police department and/or notify the following agencies:
