Cal Grant B award?

heymeiheymei Posts: 2 Harvard Champion
Hey I'm quite confused on the awards.

NEW Cal Grant B
Total Award Amount: $6,945
Tuition/Fees: $5,472
Access/Books & Supplies: $1,473

Grants & Scholarships
Award Types Fall Spring Total Amount Accepted
FEDERAL PELL GRANT $2,448 $2,447 $4,895
STATE UNIVERSITY GRANT $2,736 $2,736 $5,472
Total Grants & Scholarships $5,184 $5,183 $10,367

So... do i get all $6,945? or is that $5,472 a copy of the state university grant and they're just giving me $1,473.
I want to double check because I don't want to make my mom happy thinking shell have $5k more than I told her. I just said I'm getting an extra grant cuz I'm transferring (she knows I'll give the checks to the family). lol... yeah I mean eventually I'll figure it out when school starts but it'll make us less stressed :)

    if you guys were wondering:

    if you accept cal grant you can't get the university grant (hence same number $5472)
    but you still do get that $1473 allowance :)
