Cal Grant C Program Background
  • Participation in Cal Grant C is limited to students who are either enrolled or planning to enroll in a recognized vocational/technical/occupational program of at least four months in length. Students directly pursuing a four-year degree, graduate study course, prerequisites or general education courses are not eligible.
