There are many options available to help students pay for college expenses. In addition to administering a wide-ranging program of grants, loans and work-study positions, the Financial Aid office can also provide resources for scholarship information.
To start the financial aid process, students need to complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before each year of college. Apply early to avoid delays in getting payment; processing time can take several weeks.
The Department of Education will create a Student Aid Report (SAR) based on the information you submit on your FAFSA. This usually takes about three weeks. When you receive your SAR, make sure to review it for accuracy. If corrections are needed or you have questions about the report, contact the Financial Aid office at 719-549-3020.
All refunds from Financial Aid will be put on the CCCS Refund debit card. Students also have the option to have a check mailed to their local address.
