How do I make a school change?


After you have been awarded a Cal Grant, you can update your school of attendance online on WebGrants for Students (WG4S). Please ensure that you are using a Windows based desktop computer and the Internet Explorer browser for best results. Other browsers such as Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox have not been found to be compatible. Mac Computers, Tablets, and smartphones are also not recommended to use to log in to WG4S.

Renewal students will not be able to make a school change until they have been awarded. Updates to renewal awards will be posted in late July. You cannot update your school prior to being awarded.

To report a school change:

You must make sure that the school you plan on attending is listed on your FAFSA or CA Dream Act Application.

Log-in to WebGrants for Students (WG4S) at If this is your first time visiting WG4S, you will need to create a WG4S account by clicking the link that says, “Create an Account.”
