2024-25 Financial Aid Application Update

The FAFSA Simplification Act aims to simplify the federal aid application process by reducing the number of form questions and using direct data exchange with the IRS. The act also expands eligibility for Federal Pell Grants and removes certain barriers for students.

At the CSUCI Financial Aid & Scholarships office, we are committed to keeping our campus community informed. We will be posting additional resources and sharing important updates regularly, so be sure to check back in with us. Learn more about FAFSA Simplification.
