Better CADAA

Better CADAA

Updated January 1, 2024

The 2024-25 CA Dream Act Application (CADAA) will include some of the changes from the new FAFSA such as the incorporation of the Student Aid Index in lieu of the Expected Family Contribution. Although the number of questions will not be reduced on the CADAA, the Commission is working on making some enhancements per the recommendations of the Renewing the Dream Report that was released earlier this year. Commission staff are currently analyzing these recommendations and are working towards identifying which recommendations will be implemented for the 2024-25 award year.

Notable Enhancement(s)

Parent Signature Process changes

The Commission is working to build the parental signature into the original submission, which may eliminate the separate PIN creation process.
