Financial aid can help you pay for college. Many students are eligible for some type of financial assistance like grants, scholarships, work-study, or loans. The Financial Aid Office at Carteret Community College will work with you to explore options and access the funds you need to pay for college.
Applying for financial aid is an annual process. The first step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Include Carteret CC’s FAFSA code 008081 on your application.
Every October 1, the financial aid application becomes available for the next academic year. An academic year starts with a fall semester and includes the following spring and summer.
Apply early (as soon as October 1!) for the best financial aid options. Some funds are limited, so the sooner you apply the better your chances of accessing first-come, first-served financial aid.
Use the priority dates below to ensure your financial aid is ready before your tuition is due. If you miss the priority date, don’t worry. Carteret CC processes financial aid applications year-round. You may even receive financial aid for classes you’re currently taking!
The financial aid application takes several weeks to process. Apply early and follow through with all requirements to receive your financial aid offer as soon as possible. Your application status will appear in your student account accessible through Carteret Compass.
Not a student? Submit the Carteret CC admissions application before your financial aid can be processed.
