Financial Aid

The primary function of the Financial Aid Office is to provide assistance in obtaining financial aid to students who would otherwise be unable to attend college due to economic limitations.

Capital Community College provides a variety of financial aid programs in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and jobs to eligible students. The amount and type of aid received is dependent upon the student’s financial need as well as annual federal and state allocations. Please note that due to recent changes in federal legislation, effective July 1, 2010 the Stafford Loan Program was replaced with the Federal Direct Loan Program. For the Fall 2010 semester the processing of student loans has been delayed. For those students who qualify, you will be notified as soon as possible.

You may contact the Financial Aid Office with any questions or concerns at (860) 906-5090 or ca-finaidhelp@ccc.commnet.edu.

Financial Aid Office personnel are available to assist students in all phases of the financial aid process and in the financial planning aspects of higher education. They will answer any questions pertaining to financial aid and give counsel as needed.

In order to receive financial aid, students must:

  • Be accepted for admission to the college and enrolled in a degree or eligible certificate program.
  • Be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States or Trust Territories.
  • Be in good academic standing and making satisfactory academic progress.
  • Be in compliance with draft regulation requirements.
  • Not be in default on any previous student loan.
  • Not owe a refund to any Title IV Higher Education Grant Program at any institution.
