Grants are a form of financial aid that are based on need and disbursed according to enrollment requirements. Grants do not have to be repaid. To be considered for both federal and state grants, complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) between October 1 and March 2 each year.
March 2 is the annual priority application date for CSU, Chico.
Your application must be received by the Office of Federal Student Aid by this date in order for you to be considered for all available funds. We will continue to accept applications after March 2 and distribute awards throughout the academic year, though some funds are limited.
