Apply Online

A completed FAFSA is the starting point for financial assistance, including grants, scholarships, loans, and work-study jobs, but there may be other financial assistance programs available that require additional applications.  CVCC’s Educational Foundation requires an additional application for the scholarships it grants to CVCC students.

The earlier you complete your FAFSA, the better your chances of receiving financial assistance.

Completing your FAFSA

Before beginning your online FAFSA, you must be admitted to CVCC in a financial aid eligible program of study and have your Federal Student Aid ID.

  • If you have questions about your application and/or your program of study, please contact our Counseling department.

With these items complete, access the online FAFSA appication.  When prompted for CVCC's federal school code, enter 004988.

  • If you are under 24 years of age, you may need a parent or guardian to help complete the application.
  • Additional documentation may be required after submission of your FAFSA.  Requests for these documents will be display in your To-Do-List within our Student Information System (SIS).  Detailed instructions for checking your To-Do-List. 

Your FAFSA is not complete if requested documentation is not submitted to the Financial AId office.

Note:  Students who are interested in applying for a Federal Stafford Student Loan should also complete and submit a loan request form available in the Financial Aid Office.
