When re-applying for financial aid, you should plan to apply for financial aid as early as possible.
Steps to apply for financial aid
1. File a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by March 2. Santa Clara University's federal school code is 001326.
NOTE: If you applied for and received a PIN last year you will need to use your Federal Student Aid Personal Identification Number (PIN). Otherwise, you may apply for a PIN using the U.S. Department of Education's PIN Web site. Parents may also apply for a PIN, which will serve as the electronic signature for the FAFSA.
2. California Residents: If you are not currently receiving a Cal Grant, complete and submit a Cal Grant GPA Verification Form to be considered for a Cal Grant. The deadline is March 2. If you are currently receiving a Cal Grant, you do not need to submit a GPA Verification Form. Your FAFSA will be used to renew your Cal Grant if you are eligible.
