Complete the checklist below if you wish to apply for federal and state grants, federal loans, or the federal work study program. We highly recommend you complete steps 1-3 before the Financial Aid Priority Date (April 30th) for your semester.
Step 1: Apply for Admission to CVTC
You must be accepted into a financial aid eligible program at CVTC to receive aid. You can complete the admissions application at anytime, however, your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will not be processed until you are accepted into a financial aid eligible program.
You may proceed to step two while your admissions application is in progress.
Step 3: Complete Documentation
Return the documents requested by the financial aid office within two weeks of receiving the request. Financial aid applications will not be processed otherwise. Make sure to include your student ID on all submitted documentation.
Your award notification will be sent to your CVTC student email account and will explain how to access your financial aid award amounts in your Student Information System (SIS). To be eligible for student loans your enrollment status must be at least half time, 6 credits.
CVTC determines how much you and your family can contribute by assessing the information you submit on the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). To calculate this need, the federal government has developed a uniform calculation to determine how much each family is expected to contribute towards educational costs. After your level of financial need has been determined, CVTC will provide a financial aid package that will include all or some of the following forms of aid: grants, loans and student work study.
