    Six Good Tips

    Be sure to use the correct year's forms when completing the FAFSA and Dominican Aid Application. The 2015-16 forms cover enrollment periods for Fall 2015, and Spring 2016 and Summer 2016.

    • Dominican's priority deadline for most programs is March 2nd of each year.
    • Send verification and tax forms only if requested to do so.
    • Verification forms must be fully completed and signed; please be sure to check that no items have been left blank before sending the forms to Dominican.
    • If you use estimated income information on the FAFSA, be sure to make a correction to the information as soon as your actual income information is available.
    • If you are new applicant for the CAL Grant, be sure to complete your FAFSA and submit your CAL Grant GPA Verification form in advance of the March 2nd deadline. 
    • The California Student Aid Commission does not make exceptions to the March 2nd deadline.
