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 or California DREAM Application between January 1st and March 2nd. Students may still file the FAFSA after the March 2nd priority filing deadline, but they will only be considered for the federal Pell Grant (undergraduates only) and Direct Loan programs.
