Public Records Request

The California Public Records Act protects the rights of the public to request public records from government agencies. If you would like to request records from the California Student Aid Commission, the information below will help you to understand how the process works. 

Requests may be submitted via email, telephone, or letter.

Please provide the following information in your request

  1. The name of the requestor.
  2. A mailing address, telephone number and/or email address.
  3. A clear description of the records requested

Logging and Tracking

CPRA requests will be logged and assigned a number for tracking purposes by the Commission.  Requests for public records and our response are themselves public records that may be requested.


Responses will generally be mailed or emailed.


The practice of the Commission is to respond to  the request within ten calendar days and will notify you with an estimate of the date the records will be made available.

The ten-day response period starts with the first calendar day after the date of receipt. If the request is received after 5pm on a weekday, or on a weekend or holiday, the next business day will be considered the date of receipt.    

Please email all requests for public records to
