One of the most frequently asked questions is about how this will affect student aid. The CA Student Aid Commission does not predict any changes to our state financial aid program, including the Cal Grant. The Federal Student Aid Office is providing information on this for college students and their families. Furthermore, the Federal Government has suspended Federal Student Loan interest accrual for sixty days and given students the option to suspend payments for sixty days.
On December 4, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos announced the federal student loan administrative forbearance period is extended through January 31, 2021. See the full announcement here.
