Answer:

The California Student Aid Commission outlines the criteria for the three different Cal Grants that they provide. The three Cal Grants are Cal Grant A, Cal Grant B, and Cal Grant C. For the Cal Grant A, the California Student Aid Commission lists that for a student to be eligible they must have the financial need, meet the income and asset ceilings, and have a GPA of 3.0 or greater. For the Cal Grant B, the eligibility requirements are financial need, income and asset ceilings, and a GPA of 2.0 or greater. For the Cal Grant C, the eligibility requirements are financial need, and income and asset ceilings, there are no GPA requirements listed. The California Student Aid Commission requires that the student submit a certified Grade Point Average (GPA) electronically by the school that they attended, or by submitting the paper GPA verification form. The Cal Grant GPA Verification Form states that they will not accept academic transcripts. The form also lists all instructions and restrictions in order to have the application processed.
