Later this year, two new versions of the primary applications for financial aid in California will debut. The California Student Aid Commission will provide updates on this page to help our partners track and understand the coming changes to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and the California Dream Act Application (CADAA), known as “Better FAFSA, Better CADAA.” During the months leading up to the opening of the 2024-25 financial aid cycle, we will provide curated information to help navigate new developments in the rollout of Better FAFSA, Better CADAA.
