Navigating the Community College system can be challenging if you don't know where to start. Here are some FAQS about the CC that can help you or anyone you know that is thinking of the taking classes in Community College.
Nope! Community colleges have what's called an open door policy. That means they take students regardless of education level or background, so long as they are able to pass the Ability to Benefit exam.
Not at all! Students can apply for the Board of Governor's Fee Waiver. If you qualify, that means you may have your tuition waived.What's also great is that CC students have until to September to get additional grants. Just remember the 2nd is the priority deadline. If you apply late, you will get what is left over in the pot for student funding. Best thing to do is apply early to get the most.
Remember, financial aid is on a case by case basis and no financial aid awards are the same.
