Financial Aid Information

The fundamental purpose of the Financial Aid Program at Cleveland Community College (CCC) is to provide financial assistance, based on financial need, to students who normally could not attend post-secondary school without aid. Financial aid at CCC is based on a needs analysis. The needs analysis used by the College is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. This form, located online at www.fafsa.gov, must be completed by students applying for financial aid. Additional forms may be required.

  • Financial Aid at CCC consists of scholarships, grants and work study or any combination of these as determined by the Financial Aid Office.
  • The student or family of the student has the primary responsibility for post-secondary educational cost. Financial aid awarded by the College is based on the need of the student to supplement the family or student contributions.
  • Recipients of financial aid who withdraw from the College must personally notify the Financial Aid Office of this action. Also, any changes in name, marital status, address, academic program, or enrollment status must be reported to the Financial Aid Office.
  • The primary purpose of financial aid is to assist the student in receiving an education. To be assured of continued financial aid, students must maintain "satisfactory progress" in accordance with the College’s grading policy, listed in the catalog under "Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards."
  • Any commitment of federal and state aid is tentative and contingent upon subsequent Congressional and state appropriation and actual receipt of funds by the College.
  • The Financial Aid Office reserves the right, on behalf of the College, to review and adjust or cancel an award any time there is indication of changes in financial status, academic program, good academic standing, or failure to observe reasonable standards of conduct.
  • Recipients of financial aid from the College are to notify the Financial Aid Office of any other financial aid extended to them from sources outside the College prior to acceptance of outside aid.
  • Financial Aid will be adjusted proportionately for less than full-time enrollment. Additional information on enrollment status for a program of study is located online at www.clevelandcc.edu.
