FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is the application you must complete to receive Pell Grants which do not have to be paid back as long as you complete the semster for which you receive money and you pass. Normally, when you receive a Pell Grant the school will also offer you student loans which must be paid back with interest. Since you already have BOGW, hopefully you can get enough grant money so that you will not need to take out a loan.
Grant money can be used for anything related to education...tuition, textbooks, computer, etc.
California's Board of Governors Waiver (BOGW) Program waives enrollment fees for qualified residents of California for the entire school year. I have no idea if you can qualify for both. Ask the Financial Aid Office at your school. If you apply for both, I suppose you may have a better chance of receiving at least one of them. But I am not from California so you will need to ask at your college. Good luck!
EVERYONE should submit the FAFSA. why would you not want to try for free money for your education. it is not all loans, some are grants and scholarships. and yes, they help with textbooks
Nope you don't have to pay back its not a LOAN and everyone should apply you never know what they will offer you so enjoy it apply early
youre right. the money they've already lent you is the money you purchase the books with. often you have to purchase from you refund which in some cases could come back to you 5-6 weeks in the semester. so if you dont have a book for 5-6 weeks it can be tough. i still suggest using financial aid because the interest is low and payments are deferred until graduation. you won't find that anywhere else.
if u have enough money left over from fafsa then u can get books, keyword is enough
