- Your GPA is also considered during the selection process. The grant is given to the students with the highest GPA’s.
- The number of children in day care is also considered when selecting recipients for this grant.

- The students must have their child(ren) in a legal/licensed facility in North Carolina.

Any questions regarding Childcare Assistance should be directed to Allyson Howell by phone at 704-669-4217 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The amount awarded to each student may or may not cover the full cost of childcare provided. It is the responsibility of the student to arrange payment for the difference in cost. Cleveland Community College will continue to pay according to the agreement as long as funds are available.
- The student is responsible for turning in a Childcare Attendance Sheet each month. If Childcare Attendance Sheets are turned in late, students are not guaranteed to receive payment for the month.
- Payment will be made on or about the fifteenth of the following month.
- The student’s allocated amount for childcare assistance may not change during the school year due to increases from the childcare provider
- The Financial Aid Office has the right to terminate the agreement if guidelines are not followed.
