Desert Sands's FAFSA Graduation Requirement

FAFSA Graduation Requirement

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADAA) determines a pupil’s eligibility for financial aid to assist with a pupil’s attendance at a college or career school.

Starting with the Class of 2023, California Education Code (CEC) § 51225.7 requires districts to confirm each 12th grade pupil’s completion and submission of a FAFSA or CADAA unless the pupil is determined to be exempt or an opt-out form is completed by a pupil who is a legally emancipated minor, a pupil who is 18 years or older, a legal guardian, or parent, or a local educational agency on a pupil’s behalf.

This opt-out form permits a pupil to opt out of the completion of a FAFSA or CADAA form. For more information, see your student’s school counselor.
