Applying for financial aid is an annual process. Each family member who plans to attend college should complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon after October 1st as possible for the following academic year.
Grants and scholarships are often called “gift aid” because they are free money—financial aid that doesn’t have to be repaid. Grants are often need-based, while scholarships are usually merit-based. Carteret Community College Financial Aid Office awards scholarships to new, incoming students, continuing students, and graduating students and all students are encouraged to apply.
The Federal Work-Study (FWS) program offers jobs both on and off campus. Students participating in the FWS program work on campus and are generally employed by staff and faculty members in various departments as clerical or lab assistants.
In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (Buckley Amendment), Carteret Community College is committed to protecting privacy for all students, including distance learning students.
Carteret Community College’s financial aid professionals are expected to maintain exemplary standards of professional conduct in all aspects of carrying out their responsibilities, specifically including all dealings with any entities involved in any manner in student financial aid, regardless of whether such entities are involved in a government sponsored, subsidized, or regulated activity.
If a student’s financial aid is terminated they may appeal the decision. To do so, students must attend one Financial Aid Workshop. During the workshop, students will have the opportunity to speak with a knowledgeable staff member who will guide the student through the appeal process.
