Financial Aid Eligibility

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.
