Eligibility for Aid
All financial aid programs have specific eligibility requirements, application forms and deadlines. Complete information about financial aid is available in the Student Handbook all students receive at registration, and also from financial aid counselors at each CCV office.
To be eligible for most types of financial aid , you must be enrolled in a CCV degree program.
If you have attended other post-secondary schools, you will need to request official transcipts for our evaluation. Should you already have a degree, special conditions will apply.
There are several other conditions which must be met to qualify and also to maintain your eligibility for aid. It is your right and your responsibility to understand and to follow these conditions. Consult the Student Handbook or your counselor for more detail.
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy Explained (Word)
In order to receive financial aid funds, the federal government requires that students must be making Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). The SAP Policy (on back) is complicated, but in the simplest terms, it means that students must be making progress toward a degree in order to receive financial aid.
If you have to drop or withdraw from classes, keep in mind that these classes count in the calculations as “attempted” credits. It is best to check with an advisor and financial aid before dropping a class.
If you have any questions about SAP, please ask your Financial Aid Counselor or Academic Coordinator.
