The Annual Statewide Financial Aid Workshop series is a partnership effort between the California Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (CASFAA), The California Community Colleges Student Financial Aid Administrators Association (CCCSFAAA) and the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC). These free workshops offer high school counselors, student advocates, outreach specialists and other community education partners relevant financial aid training they can use to support their students. Workshop topics typically include updates to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and California Dream Act Application (CADAA), as well as an overview of the Cal Grant programs, programs for foster youth, new programs and legislation that is impactful to financial aid such as AB 469 which will require local education agencies (LEAs) to ensure high school seniors are completing a financial aid application.

All Annual Statewide Financial Aid Workshops will be held between August 2022 and February 2023. The workshop schedule and registration page will open in July 2022.
