  • Have a high school diploma, General Education Development (GED) or equivalent home school credential, or pass an approved “ability to benefit” test.
  • Enroll as a regular student in an eligible degree or certificate program approved by the U.S. Dept. of Education.
  • Register (or have registered) for Selective Service (applies to males between the ages of 18 to 25).

When to apply…

  • Apply for financial aid no earlier than the senior year in high school.
  • The FAFSA filing period begins January 1.
  • CCCUA has a priority filing deadline as early as May 1st for the Fall semester and November 1st for the Spring semester.
  • Students can still complete the FAFSA past the priority filing date, but may miss out on major aid programs.
  • You do not have to be admitted to a college to apply for financial aid.
  • Naturalized citizens: Make sure SSA has your naturalization on file.
