  • Undergraduate students with less than 24 units transferred into LAPU will need to be sure their prior institution is reporting their information electronically to the California Student Aid Commission before March 2, 2019.
  • If an undergraduate student does not have at least 24 units “posted” at LAPU and has not transferred units from a University or College, the student must contact their high school to provide the Cal Grant GPA Verification.
