Look out for #CASFAA2017 to follow along with the upcoming conference.


Statement passed unanimously by the Executive Council on 6/5/17:
The California Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (CASFAA) opposes the elimination of any post-secondary institution from participation in the CalGrant program based solely on its segment or tax status (i.e. Independent or Private non-Profit schools, Proprietary or for-Profit schools, the University of California, the California State University, or the Community Colleges). In an effort to protect students, we oppose reducing CalGrant funds to students because of their choice of school when that school is compliant with Federal and State regulations. We support student success, and access to CalGrant funding is essential for producing an educated, diverse population in the great State of California.
