Students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents can complete the FAFSA online at fafsa.ed.gov and list UC San Diego’s Federal School Code: 001317.
Use estimated amounts when filing your application if you have not yet filed your tax returns.

California Dream Act Application can update your estimates at www.CalDreamAct.org after filing your tax returns.

Go to pin.ed.gov and select “Apply for a PIN.”
