Before you can receive any type of financial assistance to pay for college, you must complete the financial aid process. This includes completing the FAFSA Application and a GPA Verification Form by March 2nd (for calgrant eligibility) or June 30th of any given year.  After that, you must follow up with the financial aid office to determine any additional financial aid forms you must submit to speed up the process of your application.
