Cal Grant Appeals

If you were not eligible for a Cal Grant and you feel this was in error, you may be able to submit an appeal, depending on your reason. In your appeal, please state why you feel you are eligible and submit all documentation supporting your appeal. If you believe you were denied due to an error, be sure to submit any documentation supporting the correction of that error. If you do not have any documentation to support your corrections, you may still submit an appeal. However, the Commission may not be able to overturn the denial.


Specialized Program Appeals

If you believe you qualify for a California Chafee Grant, Child Development Grant, Law Enforcement Personnel Dependents Grant (LEPD), Assumption Program of Loans for Education (APLE), State Nursing Assumption Program of Loans for Education NF (SNAPLE NF), or California National Guard Education Assistance Award Program (CNG EAAP) and you have a valid reason to appeal, you may submit a written appeal letter with the California Student Aid Commission (Commission).
