Wednesday, March 1, 2023

Last year, AB 469 otherwise known as “All In for Financial Aid” was passed. Starting in the 2022-23 academic school year, high schools, and school districts (Local Educational Agencies) will need to ensure that all 12th graders in the state of California complete a FAFSA or CA Dream Act Application, unless the student has formally submitted an opt-out waiver. The local California Student Opportunity and Access Program (CAL-SOAP) team is prepared to assist students and parents with their financial aid application.
