Financial Aid Mission Statement
We are here to help students attain their educational goals by providing the resources within federal, state, and institutional guidelines in a prompt and friendly manner.
Primary Goals of Financial Aid
CBC's Federal School Code is 003774. When applying for financial aid you will need to list this code on your FAFSA if you are planning to attend CBC.
To receive financial aid, students must reapply each year.
Students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible after January 1 for the following academic year. Applications and all required documents should be submitted to Hawk Central at the earliest possible date. Since CBC is allocated a limited amount of federal and state funds, financial aid is awarded to eligible students based upon date of file completion and availability of funds.
To allow for processing time and funds to be available by the tuition due date, completed files must be submitted to Hawk Central by:
Completed files consist of a completed FAFSA, completed CBC Financial Aid Data Sheet, and other documentation requested by the Financial Aid office personnel.
Applications will still be accepted after the above dates. However, the eligibility may not be determined in enough time to pay tuition and fees prior to the quarter beginning. If an applicant is eligible for aid, the award will be made retroactive.
Summer eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis as funding is available. Students must notify the Financial Aid of their summer enrollment in one of the following ways:
A determination of eligibility will then be made and the funds awarded.
Summer quarter forms and/or loan requests are must be submitted by August 1st (or the Friday before if the 1st falls on a weekend). Summer aid requests will not be accepted after this date.
