Changes in Financial Need/Special Circumstances

In some cases a student and/or their family may experience a loss of income or a significant unavoidable expense that affects their ability to pay their balance or be approved for a loan. Some examples are job loss, disability, divorce, death of a parent or spouse, unusually high medical or dental expenses (not covered by insurance) or loss of untaxed income such as child support or workman’s compensation.

CCS will also take in to consideration if a dependent student’s parents are paying for other children in the family to attend a private grade or high school or if the parent is enrolled at least half-time in a program that leads to a college degree or certificate.

Students experiencing these types of financial strain should contact the Financial Aid Office to discuss.
