Apply for a Cal Grant: Step 2
Check if your school has shared your GPA
Once you’ve applied for financial aid, check if your school has shared your GPA with us.
To do so, simply log into WebGrants 4 Students. There, you’ll find out if we’ve received your financial aid application and your GPA. If we have both, you’ve finished your Cal Grant application.
If they haven’t, submit your own GPA form
If your school hasn’t shared your GPA with us, you have to print and submit your own GPA form to apply for a Cal Grant.
- You’ll need to ask any official from your high school or college to help you fill out the section "For school use only."
- There’s no need to submit a transcript.
- You don’t need to know your grade point average (GPA).
You should submit your test scores (from the ACT, SAT, GED, TASC, or HiSET exams) instead of your GPA if you:
- Were homeschooled
- Attended a high school that isn’t regionally accredited
- Went to any school that can’t convert your grades to a 4.00 scale (pass/fail only or certain schools outside of the United States)
If you’ve been out of school for five years or longer, you can submit test scores or your GPA.
