Financial Aid

Cisco College has a comprehensive program of grants, work programs, loan programs, and scholarships to assist eligible students with the cost of their education. Each financial aid program which the college administers has terms and conditions to insure that the aid is awarded to those that qualify. In virtually all circumstances, federal, state, and local directives require that the recipient have a documented financial need. To determine the need for financial assistance Cisco College uses the student's estimated cost of attendance and the result of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). 

Students are encouraged to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool when completing the FASFA. This tool allows students and parents to access the IRS tax return information needed to complete the FASFA and transfer the data directly into their FASFA.

You must apply for financial aid each year. Changes in Federal regulations, educational costs and your family circumstances make it necessary to evaluate your eligibility each year.
