The FAFSA is the only application required to determine eligibility for federal, state and institutional (CCS) need-based financial aid. Students should complete the FAFSA each year they may need to receive aid. Even if you’re uncertain of your plans, it is still a good idea to get your FAFSA filed so you are prepared either way.
The FAFSA for the upcoming school year is available beginning October 1st of the previous year. For example, the FAFSA for the 2017-2018 academic year was available beginning October 1, 2016. It is recommended you file your FAFSA no later than March 1st to ensure your maximum eligibility for aid.
CCS’ Title IV code is 006771.
