UC and State - Cal Grant ever FULLY cover tuition?

<p>Hey guys; I need to know if you have ANY information on whether the "Cal Grant" ever fully covers the tuition expenses, and if there is ever money left over from the "Cal Grant" fund. Also if you know anything about how the other loans, and aids work I would appreciate the additional information. Thanks everybody, any advice is useful.</p>

<p>Sincerely doubt it. The max you can get for the Cal Grant is like 10 grand at the UCs, in which case you won't get any your way. </p>

<p>Thank goodness for 0 EFC and B&G! (That DOES pay off your tuition entirely).</p>

<p>Thanks RheeL3. I now have a good idea of whats going on. Question: Do you get more from the cal grant with a zero efc? I have a zero EFC too, but I could either choose to use my veterans waiver (Which will cover all tuition, but not give me the "Cal grant", but still the other aids) or I could get the cal grant with the other aids (Overall I want to know if I could have money left over after tuition from the Cal grant alone, since I have an EFC zero. In this case the Cal grant will be more worthwhile than the veterans waiver).</p>

<p>If you go to a UC that you can commute to, you should get free tuition and a whole extra.</p>
