Applying for Aid

Follow these steps to apply for financial aid
  • File the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

    This is the first step to establishing eligibility for all federal and state student aid programs as well as CCC need-based aid.

    The FAFSA can be filed anytime after October 1 for the next school year. Be sure to select the correct academic year. CCC’s school code number is 014468. This number is used for all Central Community College campuses and learning centers.

    To qualify for the maximum need-based funding, complete your FAFSA by April 1.

    Once we receive the results of your FAFSA, we will contact you to let you know if supporting documents are needed to complete your file. These could include Federal tax return transcripts, W-2s, verification worksheets or other forms that may be necessary to confirm your FAFSA data. Your aid will not be awarded until all requested documentation is received.
