To receive priority consideration for funding from UCSB and the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC—the agency that administers the Cal Grant programs), all financial aid applicants must file the FAFSA between January 1, 2011 and March 2, 2011. If filing the paper version of the FAFSA, it is important to obtain a certificate of mailing from the U.S. Postal Service as proof that the FAFSA was filed by March 2, 2011. Students may still file the FAFSA after the March 2, 2011 priority filing deadline, but they will only be considered for the federal Pell Grant (undergraduates only), and Direct Loan programs.
