Providing the best student experience is important to us. We want you to be able to complete your financial aid file on your own time and on the device of your choice. If you completed a California Dream Act Application (CADAA), you are able to:

  • Complete financial aid forms on your phone, tablet or computer
  • Securely upload documents from any device
  • E-sign documents - both you and your parents
  • Manage your financial aid tasks online
  • Receive automated text/email reminders about outstanding tasks and next steps

To submit documents to the Financial Aid & Scholarships office, follow these steps:

  1. Log on to your myCI portal (
  2. Under “Services” find and select the “Financial Aid Student Forms” option
  3. Create your account (you only need to create your account once).
    Follow the specified instructions to verify your identity as reported on your CADAA (first name, last name, date of birth, Dream Application ID)
  4. Once logged in to the Financial Aid Student Forms portal, complete all assigned tasks and securely upload required documentation

We encourage you to complete your tasks as soon as possible. Your file will be considered complete once ALL required documents are received and reviewed. As we review your documentation, there may be additional forms and/or information required. To prevent delays, opt-in to text alerts in Student Forms. Also check your myCI portal and email weekly for updates regarding additional requirements. Your file must be complete prior to your financial aid determination and disbursement.
