Columbia recognizes the need for additional financial assistance for students who, during their enrollment, encounter unexpected and extreme financial hardship that threatens to interrupt previous financial plans.
There are two financial assistance programs for which a student can be considered: Tuition Assistance Grant and Supplemental Assistance Program. To be considered for these financial assistance programs a students needs to first have a current Student Aid Report (SAR) on file. To receive a SAR, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Click here to get started on the FAFSA Process.
After your SAR has been received by the college you will receive a CCC Award Letter as soon as April 1 for the next upcoming school year. Your SAR will outline all financial assistance programs for which you are eligible and also the next steps in accessing these programs.
Eligibility Criteria, deadlines and award amounts for each program are listed below.
