Financial Aid + Scholarships

Financial aid is available to help you achieve your educational goals. The CCC Financial Aid office provides access to grants, scholarships, work-study and loans to help pay for school. You must fill out the FAFSA or ORSAA application (if applicable), each year you attend college to qualify to receive financial aid. The FAFSA and ORSAA open on Oct. 1 each year and must be completed annually. Please see Admissions and Financial Aid below for eligibility requirements.

Complete your FAFSA/ORSAA application as early as possible and add CCC's school code (004878). Once completed, it can take up to a week to electronically process into our system; watch your CCC student email and Self Service for your next step directions. For help filling out your Application, visit the Financial Aid Resource Lab.
