When will I know if I’ve received a Cal Grant?
After you apply, you can track the status of your Cal Grant application online by using WebGrants for Students.
If you qualify for a Cal Grant Entitlement award and your application was received on time and needs no corrections, you will receive a Cal Grant Eligibility Notification after November. After following the steps in the notification to select your school of attendance, you should receive a California Aid Report (CAR). If you have not heard from the Commission by June 30th, please call toll free 888.224.7268 or log into your WebGrants for students account to check your status under the Cal Grant panels.
If you’re applying for a Cal Grant Competitive award, you should receive a CAR by the end of May. If you have not heard from the Commission by mid-June, please call toll free 888.224.7268 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to check on the status of your application.
If you’re applying to renew your Cal Grant, you should receive your notification for renewal by mid-July. If you are a renewal Cal Grant student and you have not heard from the Commission by August 1, please call toll free 888.224.7268 or e-mail email@example.com.
