Q: I know that students who plan to attend college in fall of 2015 need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid by March 2 in order to get the most financial aid possible. Where can I direct high school seniors for help completing the FAFSA?
A: California Cash for College Workshops are held in January and February of every year, up until the Cal Grant March 2 deadline. You can search for workshops near you based on your zip code, city or county at the Cash for College website. Most County Independent Living Programs also offer FAFSA workshops that are targeted specifically to foster youth.
