IDOC Processing for Prospective Students
All undergraduates who are applying for financial aid, except prospective international students, need to submit the required financial aid documents to IDOC.
Caltech works with IDOC differently than most other schools. Caltech will not request your information from IDOC until after you have been admitted and submitted either your CSS PROFILE or FAFSA. Early Action admits who have submitted their PROFILE and/or FAFSA will not have their information requested until mid-December due to Caltech's processing schedule. This means that Caltech will not be one of the schools listed on your IDOC portal, and you won’t see Caltech forms in your list of required documents until after you’ve been admitted.
