The College provides a number of financial assistance programs, ensuring educational opportunities for individual students to meet the rising cost of obtaining an education. Grants, scholarships, and employment opportunities are included in such programs.
One of the most common forms of financial assistance is the Federal Pell grant. To be considered for Pell grant funds, students are encouraged to apply early by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year at www.fafsa.gov. As part of the initial application process, each student will receive a personalized Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID). The FSA ID will allow a student to complete the FAFSA with the United States Department of Education (DOE) to determine the student’s financial need/eligibility.
The student’s financial need is the difference between the cost of education designated by the school and the amount the student or the student’s family can contribute toward the cost of the student’s education, known as the expected family contribution (EFC), which is determined by a standard formula from the DOE.
The Financial Aid Office will evaluate and verify the information provided on the FAFSA. Students will be notified if documentation is required for verification by the DOE.
The Financial Aid Office is located in the Admissions Office within the Student Center Building. Assistance for completing the FAFSA is available through the Financial Aid Office. The Federal School Code for Coastal Carolina Community College is 005316.
Applications for state, institutional, and private programs vary. Contact the Financial Aid Office (Student Center Building), the College Foundation Office (James L. Henderson, Jr. Administration Building), or the Human Services Office (Kenneth B. Hurst Continuing Education Building) for specific information.
