FAFSA deadline of March 2nd is quickly approaching.  Make sure your FAFSA is completed as soon as possible so you are eligible for Federal Financial Aid and Cal Grants.




California Student Aid Commission has started the process of offering Cal Grant Awards for those attending college in California next year. Seniors who completed the FAFSA application are automatically considered for Cal Grants, unless you opted out of the GPA Verification process earlier this year. GPA Verification has been processed for Peninsula High School, if you believe for any reason that your GPA was not uploaded, please see Mrs. Shafer in the CCC immediately. 
Please check your email often for updates. Students should log onto Cal Grants through the web site and register for a Web Grants 4 Students account. These accounts provide you with the resources, information and tools needed to assist you with the college financial aid process. WGS will allow you to manage your Cal Grant account(s) online by letting you view updates, make school changes, make address changes, make corrections, and post leave of absence requests.
