Financial Aid Assistance Information
Below is a summary of financial aid resources available at CCC. For additional information, please check out the Financial Aid section of the CCC web site.
Types of Federal Aid
Federal PELL Grants
PELL Grants are intended to be the financial base for all students applying for federal financial aid. Other forms of aid may be added to the PELL grant to meet a student’s total financial need. Students wishing to apply for any form of aid must apply for the PELL Grant because it is the basis for determining all other aid awarded. The PELL Grant award is a grant and does not have to be repaid. Eligibility and the actual amount of the student’s award are determined by the U.S. Department of Education on the basis of the student’s own financial resources coupled with the student’s family’s resources and the total appropriation allotted by the federal government of the program for each academic year.
Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grants (FSEOG)
FSEOG are for the student with exceptional financial need who without the grant would be unable to continue his or her education. The grant is not a loan and need not be repaid. The student receiving the FSEOG Grant must also be receiving a PELL Grant.
College Work-Study Program
The College Work-Study Program provides jobs for a student who has a financial need and wishes to work while in college. Earnings from these jobs are expected to be applied to the student’s educational expenses. Job assignments will be at various campus work stations, and the type of work will vary with the needs of the college. A student is eligible to earn up to an amount specified by the Financial Aid Office. In arranging a job and determining how many hours a week the student may work under this program, the financial aid officer will take into account: (1) the student’s NEED for financial assistance, and (2) the student’s class schedule.
The Stafford Student Loan Program enables students to borrow directly from a bank and/or lender. The maximum amount for any student is set by federal law. A Master Promissory Note, as well as Entrance and Exit Counseling are required, and eligible amounts are calculated by the Financial Aid Office.
Deadline for processing student loans is April 1st. Financial Aid file and all loan paperwork must be received by April 1st or the loan request may be refused. Special circumstances will be considered.
Scholarships and Other Resources
Students are encouraged to seek scholarships from private sources and Coffeyville Community College, as well as to utilize other resources such as Community Scholarships, or veteran's benefits. Although federal regulations and Institutional policies require that these forms of assistance be counted as financial resources when determining eligibility for need-based aid, they will improve your overall aid package. These scholarships and other resources will first be used to meet any gap between the cost of attendance, the EFC, and the financial aid offered. Next, they will reduce the amount of loan or Work-Study offered.
The eligibility for receiving financial assistance is determined by comparing the cost of attending Coffeyville Community College with the parents’ and the students’ ability to contribute toward his/her expenses. Financial assistance is viewed as being supplemental to all other resources to meet these costs.
The evaluated financial need equals the difference between the total cost of attending Coffeyville Community college (including all college charges - room and board, books and supplies, personal expenses, and allowable travel expenses) and the ability of the family to contribute to those educational costs. The factors taken into consideration when evaluating the expected contribution include parental income and assets, and benefits such as those from Social Security, Veterans Administration, rehabilitation awards from outside agencies, and the student’s assets and expected savings from employment. The basis for determining the family contribution is from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
Continued eligibility for the various financial aid programs will require the following: (a) continued enrollment; (b) satisfactory academic standing and the progression toward a degree; (c) properly completed and timely filed applications; (d) all college accounts due and payable being current; (e) remain eligible by the individual program guidelines; (f) sign a notarized affidavit that all federal financial aid funds received will be used for the applicable payment period for educational expenses; (g) not owe a refund on a Pell Grant or Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant; (h) not have defaulted on a student loan; (i) must be in compliance with selective service registration laws; (j) must not engage in the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession, or use of a controlled substance during the time period covered by the Pell Grant.
How Need-Based Aid is Awarded
If the Cost of Attendance (Budget) - Expected Family Contribution = Need for Aid calculation indicates that you are eligible for financial aid, you may be awarded a financial aid package/offer that consists of a combination of grants. Scholarships are authorized by scholarship sponsors, which may also be awarded. Student loans and Work-Study are available upon request and awarded after eligibility is determined. Work-Study and Federal Supplemental Educational Grants are limited funds and awarded to students on a first come, first serve basis, as soon as financial aid files are completed. The Financial Aid Office attempts to distribute grant, loan, and Work-Study funds equitably among the population of all eligible applicants.
Every student who applies for aid is awarded the maximum amount of grant funds for which he or she is eligible. A student whose parents do not have sufficient resources to contribute very much to his or her education may receive more grant funds than a student whose family can make a more substantial contribution. Whatever your family situation, you can be sure that you will be treated fairly and equitably with respect to students in similar financial circumstances.
Student Rights and Responsibilities
Students receiving Financial Aid have certain rights and responsibilities under the Pell Grant, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, College Work-study Program, Guaranteed Student Loan and other aid programs.
Federal Work Study
Federal Work Study is a need based employment program where students are allowed the chance to work an on-campus or a community service job in order to earn funds to help with their educational expenses. Students must file the FAFSA and complete all necessary financial aid paperwork before they can apply for work study.
Student Loan Terms and Loan Exit Counseling
See the Direct Loan Process page on the CCC Financial Aid web site for details on loan terms and required loan exit counseling.
CCC Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy
Individuals who fail to maintain reasonable academic progress may have their financial aid terminated. For additional information, the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy is available on CCC's Financial Aid Web Site.
Return of Title IV Funds
Title IV funds are awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of Title IV funds that the student was originally scheduled to receive.
If a recipient of Title IV grant or loan withdraws from a school after beginning attendance, the amount of Title IV grant or loan assistance earned by the student must be determined. If the amount disbursed to the student is greater than the amount the student earned, unearned funds must be returned. Federal grant money determined to be returned by the student is considered an overpayment. The student must repay the amount in full or make satisfactory repayment arrangements with either Coffeyville Community College or the U.S. Department of Education. Repayment arrangements must be made by the student within 45 days of the date the college notifies the student of the overpayment status. The student is ineligible for future Federal financial assistance if a satisfactory repayment arrangement has not been met.

Areas of Study Offered at CCC (Transfer Degree Programs and Technical Programs)
Withdrawing From School
A student who wishes to withdraw from the College before the end of the semester must complete an official Schedule Change Form and confer with the Director of Advising, Registrar, Financial Aid Director, and Business Office Clerk. Technical Division students would contact the Technical Campus Central Office. A student remains responsible for payment of tuition and fees if the withdrawal occurs after the tuition refund date. Additionally, a student who attends less than sixty (60) percent of the allotted class time and receives federal financial aid will be responsible for returning a portion of that aid. A student who officially withdraws from the College before the withdrawal deadline will receive a “W” (no credit or penalty) for each course. Unless all the steps of this procedure have been taken, the student will not receive honorable dismissal and the semester grades will be recorded as assigned by instructors.
Payment of tuition, fees and residential housing are due before the first day of classes. The enrollment is not finalized until payment is made in full, payment options have been set up or Financial Aid is confirmed. If Financial Aid does not cover the student account balance, a payment is required. If Financial Aid is not confirmed, a payment is required. The Business Office can accept payments over the phone via credit/debit card or log into Raven Access.
Exact dates of the refund periods are published in the official class schedules and student handbook for each semester and summer sessions. No partial refunds are allowed after the published dates.
