If you think you might have difficulty paying for your education at CPTC, we encourage you to apply for financial aid.
Location: Building 17, first floor
Thirty-minute appointments are available if scheduled at least one day in advance.
Summer quarter begins on Monday June 30, 2014. Federal and state financial aid programs cannot be disbursed or bookstore accounts activated for summer quarter prior to Tuesday July 1, 2014. The Financial Aid Office sends a confirmation email to students via the campus assigned email account when disbursements have been sent to Higher One for disbursement. Due to a high volume of disbursements at the beginning of the quarter, please allow extra processing time.
The 2014-15 FAFSA is now available. If you're continuing in your program into summer quarter, be sure to complete the application by April 11 to be considered an on-time applicant.
Deadlines for financial aid applications:
To apply for financial aid, please follow the 2014-2015 five-step application. Be sure to file your Stafford Loan application well in advance of the deadline.
To receive financial aid you must meet basic eligibility requirements and academic progress standards. To pay in-state tuition rates you must meet Washington residency requirements.
In addition to grants offered through Financial Aid, many scholarships are available through community organizations and service groups. Check the bulletin board outside of CPTC Financial Aid (Building 17) and these links.
We provide tools to figure out what type of financial aid you should pursue and to estimate how much your CPTC education will cost.
