We believe that everyone should have access to a college education. That's why our financial counselors go above and beyond to create individual plans to help you reach your educational goals. 97% of our students receive financial assistance to help pay for their college education. Financial aid counselors will walk you through the process and help determine your eligibility for everything from merit, honors, and leadership scholarships to athletic scholarships, music scholarships, grants and work study, as well as a variety of loans. There are special scholarships for transfer students, too. And since no two students are alike, no two financial plans are, either.
Use our Net Price Calculator to help you plan how you will pay for your college education.

AWARDING FINANCIAL AID
We encourage all students to apply for financial aid as soon as possible and at the same time you are going through the admissions process. The first step to receiving financial aid is completing the FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov (CU’s school code is 003191). Look for any communication from the Office of Financial Aid with additional information they may request from you. Usually students receive their financial aid awards beginning in early April. Financial aid is disbursed at the beginning of each term.
