So I Finished my Community college this last Summer, and due to COVID, I did not transfer during the fall, nor did I take any classes at my community college during the Fall. For the most part, I was dealing with maintaining a job/COVID as well as getting my AA, seeing as I didn’t get a chance to Graduate my junior college during the summer.
I was betting my financial stability on Cal grants. Which I meet every requirement for, but alas I spotted this recruitment I did not see before which made my heart sink.
Under “Cal Grant Transfer Entitlement Award Eligibility Requirements”
"There cannot be a gap in enrollment between attendance at the California Community college and the 4-Year University"
I am at that borderline state, where I can’t get Federal Aid, but I am not financially stable. I was expecting Cal grants, but because I was busy this fall. Does that mean I am simply void from receiving any Cal grants?
Thank you for clarification, and help. I’m very worried by this.
