Applying for Aid

CCC Title IV Federal School Code: 003189

The primary responsibility for meeting college costs rests with students and their families. Clatsop Community College recognizes that many individuals cannot assume the full financial burden of a college education. For this reason, financial aid is available to help bridge the gap between the costs of education and the available student and/or family resources. Our goal is to assist students in accessing federal and state funding sources to assist in meeting the costs of their educational goals.

Summer 2018 - June 1, 2018. Term starts June 25, 2018
