It all begins with the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The information you submit on your FAFSA will allow CCBC's financial aid team to review your situation and help you figure out the best financial aid options available to you.

You should fill out the FAFSA regardless of whether or not you think you’ll qualify for any aid. You never know, you may be surprised by the results!

To continue receiving financial aid, complete a new FAFSA every academic year beginning October 1.
