Financial aid can be a very confusing process. With all sorts of forms and deadlines, it can be difficult to know where to begin! Here at the CCC, it is Mr. Ghitis' goal to make the financial aid process go as smoothly as possible. It begins with completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA uses parent and student income to determine the student's expected family contribution to pay for school. The FAFSA must be completed to qualify for grants, student loans, and federal work study programs. Heights seniors and their parents can begin applying as soon as October 1. Stay tuned for announcements concerning Height's annual Financial Aid Night!
