Since its creation by the Legislature, in 1955, the Commission has continued to operate as the principal state agency responsible for administering financial aid programs for students attending public and private universities, colleges, and vocational schools in California. The Commission has never wavered from its central mission to make education beyond high school financially accessible to all Californians. The Commission provides financial aid policy analysis and leadership, in partnership with California's colleges, universities, financial institutions, and financial aid associations. The application deadline is March 2 for the following academic year. Most CSAC programs require completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The student services team was phenomenal. I applied for and was rewarded a scholarship which truly helped me financially. Without the assistance, I do not think I would have been able to complete my grad school requirements.
