Financial Aid

If you want to pursue a degree or certificate program, enhance your career, or enrich your personal life, financial assistance may be available. College of Continuing Education (CCE) students receive funding from many sources to help pay for their education, including grants, scholarships, and other assistance. Consider the following to explore your financial aid options.

Step 1 - Identify Funding Options by Checking Out the Online Financial Resources Wizard

  • The Financial Resources Wizard is an easy, interactive tool to quickly identify funding likely to match your individual situation. Choose different options depending on whether you are:
    • Admitted to a degree or certificate program
    • Enrolled in credit courses and not yet admitted (or not seeking admission) to a program
    • Enrolled in noncredit courses or programs

Step 2 - Apply for CCE Scholarships and Grants

  • More than 150 scholarships and grants are awarded annually
  • Awards apply to tuition and required fees and do not need to be repaid
  • Individual awards typically range from $500 to $3,000; or up to the cost of three credits for students admitted to CCE graduate programs
