Can I use my Cal Grant money for a new laptop?
Hello, I will be starting community college this year and will be transferring to uni after 2 years. I've been awarded the Promise Grant to cover my tuition & fees for the upcoming semesters at my community college. But I've also received money for Cal Grant & because of my major, I am in need of a new laptop. Would it be okay to use my Cal Grant money for this? (If so, how exactly do I get the money I've received?) Thanks!3 replies
