CCV offers a quality education at the lowest cost of any college in Vermont and we are here to help you apply for and receive financial aid.
Applying for Financial Aid
Gather documents you’ll need to fill out for the FAFSA.
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). See the chart below for which FAFSA you should file. CCV’s school code is 011167. As you begin the FAFSA, you (and a parent/guardian if their information is required) need to create or retrieve your FSA ID. This lets you sign the FAFSA electronically.
Schedule an appointment with VSAC’s Educational Opportunity Center (EOC). VSAC Outreach supports adult learners in accessing college and career training services. In partnership with CCV, EOC counselors can connect students with local community resources or provide support in helping them enroll in school. Please call 877-961-4369 to set up a time to talk with an EOC counselor.
CCV will receive a copy of your FAFSA within a week after you complete it. You will be contacted via mail, phone or text if any additional documentation is needed. Want to talk with a counselor about what aid you could receive? Contact your local financial aid counselor!
Vermont residents may contact VSAC about State grant opportunities at 1-800-882-4166, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by checking MyVSAC Work with Grants at www.vsac.org.
Tax return information if you filed taxes (or your parents’ if you are considered dependent). See the chart below for the tax year you should use. These tax forms are usually called “1040” tax returns, or “W-2s.” You’ll be able to import your tax information using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT). The IRS DRT remains the fastest, most accurate way to input your tax return information into the FAFSA form.
If you did not file taxes, you should gather W-2s from all sources of income as well as any untaxed income. You will also need financial records of any benefit you received, such as child support received or paid, worker’s compensation, or disability income.
