2020 Cal Grant Regional Trainings
The California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) has determined that all on-site training events for the remainder of 2020 will be cancelled and that we will provide virtual events and content in their place. CSAC will be offering recorded Cal Grant Regional Training videos as well as live webinars via Zoom. The live webinars will cover the content of the one-day training event in three sessions of 2-3 hours each. Please look out for another communication with the dates and sign up for these webinars in the next few weeks.
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, CSAC will continue to offer live webinars on a variety of relevant subjects.
- Session A (CSAC Updates, Institutional Eligibility, Cal Grant Overview, and CADAA. Estimated 2 1/2 – 3 hours)
- Session B (Disbursements & Payments, Payment Scenarios, Navigating WebGrants, Reports and Tools, Reconciliation and Program Compliance. Estimated 2 – 2 1/2 hours)
