To determine what type of Financial Aid you are eligible, complete a Free Application for Student Federal Aid (FAFSA) . All students, regardless of income, are encouraged to submit a FAFSA. Even students who do not qualify for need-based aid, are usually eligible for federal loans with discounted interest rates and origination fees. Click here for FAFSA Tips (PDF, 209.92KB)
Once you have completed the FAFSA, the Financial Aid Office may request additional documentation needed to process your application. Students will not be awarded until all requested documents have been submitted.
Once your file is complete, you are ready to be awarded financial aid through our automated packaging process. Students will receive an email directing them to their myCI online once they have been awarded financial aid.
Financial Aid Awards can be accepted or declined online via myCI. If your offer includes federal student loans or work-study, additional requirements must be completed before these funds can be disbursed to your student account.
