College Applications
California Public Colleges: The University of California and the California State University system applications are open. Applications can be submitted between November 1 and November 30. You must have your applications in by November 30, so don’t wait until the last minute!

Private and Out of State Colleges: Each college will have its own application and financial aid deadline. Deadlines are listed on college websites. Please note each deadline and make sure your application is ready.

Financial Aid
The FAFSA and the CSS Profile are open. Please be aware that each college has its own financial aid form deadline. Deadlines for grants and scholarships may be found directly on each college’s website.

  • The FAFSA is accepted by most colleges. This is for federal and state financial aid such as the Pell Grant, CalGrant, federal loans, and work study. Click on the link for more information: Student Aid.
  • The CSS Profile is required by some colleges for need-based financial aid.
  • A list of colleges that request the profile can be found here: List of participating colleges.
  • Scholarships: Deadlines vary. Check each college’s website for college-specific scholarships. There is also a great website for external scholarships: Scholarships and Contests.

Essay Help
iLEAD has teamed up with Ethan Sawyer known by most as “The College Essay Guy.” Ethan provides online classes to help learners with just about every type of college application essay! Funding may be used for discounted classes for Exploration learners, but scholarships are also available directly from College Essay Guy if a learner is out of funds and would benefit from access to his classes. Learners can contact the high school team for more information.
