The Cal Independent Scholars Network Program (CISN) provides support and resources to incoming freshman, transfer, and continuing students who have recently emancipated from foster care, or are orphaned, and certified independent by the Financial Aid Office. By providing individual support, guidance, and resources to assist students in their transition to Cal, we facilitate their academic progress, personal development, and promote the realization of their educational and career goals.
