When will I receive my Cal Grant funds?

Your Cal Grant funds will first go to your school, so you should contact your school’s financial aid office for information on its disbursement policies. Schools disburse the funds to their students based on their disbursement schedules. Since the school is responsible for payments, you will need to work with your financial aid office to resolve issues with payments. If the school determines that a student is not eligible, they have the authority to withdraw the award.

Note: In order to receive a Cal Grant payment, you must be attending at least half-time, provide all necessary documentation to your school, and maintain a Satisfactory Academic Progress as reported by your school.
