The table below shows the name and deadline of every form that you need to apply for financial aid.  Use this table if you are a US Citizen or permanent resident applying to Caltech for admission as a freshman for entry in fall 2020.  Click on each form's name for more specific instructions. 

If you just want to apply for federal financial aid, you only need to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  If we need more information to complete your application, we will contact you.
