Time to sign up for financial aid for CCC student

The deadline to apply for financial aid to attend Coconino Community College is fast approaching.

Students needing federal financial aid should have applications completed by July 20 in order to attend CCC during the fall semester, which begins Aug. 29. The form is available at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The application can take up to 40 days to process, and unfortunately, the college has students that do not make it through the registration process because they did not fill out the FAFSA in time.

About 70 percent of Page CCC students qualify for up to a yearly $5,500 in Pell grant money through FAFSA that does not have to be paid back, which is an amount that could pay for all tuition and books. Staff members at the CCC Page Campus are available to help fill out the forms.
