What does it mean if the FAFSA is returned stating not eligible for any Cal Grants? and Why? What else can be done?

Asked by an anonymous Tumblr user.

Cal Grants are student financial aid and funded by the State of California. They are available to California graduating high school seniors, recent graduates, and people who meet other qualifications. If you were denied a Cal Grant, you may be able to appeal depending on the type of award. Learn more about what you can do if you were denied.
