The California College Affordability Summit: A Pathway to Financial Aid

This year, CSAC hosted its 2nd annual California College Affordability Summit in an effort to bring California’s K-12 and Higher Education communities together. The Summit will provide educators and policy leaders information and resources about the importance of financial aid and its ability to increase college access, enrollment, and persistence. Session topics will include embedding financial aid application completion within curricula, developing systems of support for vulnerable student populations, securing policy and system changes, and maximizing partnership efforts between higher education and K-12 institutions. We hope you were able to join us for this one-day virtual experience!

CSAC’s Response to COVID-19

Marlene Garcia California Student Aid Commission The COVID-19 crisis has uprooted all of our lives, especially the lives of our students whose college experience has turned into a virtual one overnight. We at the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) applaud segments and campuses for pivoting quickly to ensure students remain on their educational path. We also recognize equity gaps have widened due to COVID-19.
