Understanding types of financial aid

CCBC offers several types of financial assistance, including federal, state, and institutional funding in the form of grants, scholarships, employment, and loans.

For consideration of financial aid at CCBC, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). After your FAFSA is completed and submitted to CCBC, and your eligibility is reviewed, we will offer financial aid options via SIMON.
