Financial Aid Programs, policies, and procedures are subject to change in order to comply with federal and state legislation and required regulations. The federal requirements effective July 1, 2011 will be implemented in the review of summer quarter progress and in the review of files beginning with fall 2011. The Director of Financial Aid and Student Employment may use his/her discretion and professional judgment within federal and state guidelines in making exceptions to these policies based upon a student’s individual circumstances and the probability of the student’s academic success. While CBC strives to be student-centered in its decision-making, ultimately, the College is responsible for disbursing financial aid funds in a judicious manner while complying with all federal and state regulations.
