The California Student Aid Commission is offering Cal Grant
Regional Training events statewide in 2020. These one-day
trainings are intended for college financial aid administrators.
Registration is now open for the events listed below. Please note
that additional dates & locations will be listed soon. This year,
all Cal Grant Regional Trainings are one day
only and will last from 8:00 AM to 4:30
PM, with doors open at 7:30 AM. Light refreshments
will be served each morning. Attendees will be given ample time
to go offsite to eat lunch on their own and return.
These free trainings are designed to assist financial aid
administrators who need updated Cal Grant instruction, new
program information and help to better navigate the WebGrants
system. Topics typically include Cal Grant program updates,
institutional eligibility, Cal Grant payments including payment
and adjustment codes, program cycles and types, reconciliation
and audits, navigating WebGrants, reports and tools, Chafee Grant
updates and Middle Class Scholarship. For those who are new to
the Cal Grant program, supplemental materials and training videos
will be provided prior to each training. Additionally, the
Student Aid Commission will continue to offer live webinars on a
variety of relevant subjects.
