Cal Grant Transfer Entitlement Award HELP!!!!

Hey Everyone,

I’m wondering if anyone else is in the same situation as me or if any experts can help me out!!!

So I applied for the 2020-2021 FAFSA late because I wasn’t planning on going to a University this year.

I graduated from my community College this June 2020

I am applying to attend a 4 year University, and I am beginning during their spring semester which is April 2021. So I won’t get any FAFSA money for that semester but I am getting a scholarship to pay for that semester.

BUT I applied for the 2021-2022 FAFSA and I am hoping to get the Transfer Entitlement Award starting in the Fall semester, August 2021. But the problem is I won’t technically be a transfer for the 2021-2022 FAFSA year. Because I will already have been attending school since April 2021.

Do you think that I will still qualify for the Transfer Entitlement award even though ill begin attending the school in April? Will they even know that I am attending the school in April if I am not receiving any FAFSA money?

Also I will still be attending the community college for spring semester January-May 2021 just so that I won’t have a gap in enrollment which is one of the requirements for the Transfer entitlement award.
