Pay careful attention so that you won't be bumped as the result of something that could have been avoided.

After the required forms have been mailed, it's important to know when the Cal Grant A confers the award and actually dispenses the money so that you can know if it is possible to count on the grant to assist with your financial needs and how it will assist with your future, as there may be restrictions in what can be paid with the Cal Grant A.
