A college education is among the most valuable investments a person can make. Many of Cloud County Community College's students rely on financial aid to help with the expenses of a college education. Our Financial Aid Office works with students to help them receive Federal Financial Aid like grants and direct loans. Some funds are based on financial need as established by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You may also qualify for scholarships based on your academic, activity or athletic qualifications. There are also work-study employment opportunities.
We have provided simple instructions for completing the FAFSA and applying for Financial Aid. You have to apply for each academic year. If you are a returning student, complete the FAFSA renewal application.
It may take several weeks or even a couple of months to process your application, so please apply early to avoid a payment plan or paying in full for your student account. We have established priority deadlines for submitting any forms or documents that the Financial Aid Office may request:
Fall Classes: June 1
Spring Classes: November 1
Summer Classes: May 1
