Financial aid doesn't have to be difficult. At the Office of Financial Aid, we're here to make the application process easy for you so that you can get the financial aid that you require, and the education that you need to achieve your career goals.
Complete the FAFSA
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to figure out how much money you are eligible to get. Apply for financial aid every academic year; the next year's FAFSA becomes available October 1.
Central Piedmont FAFSA code: 002915
If you miss a financial aid priority date, you are still encouraged to file the FAFSA — you will be considered for federal student aid (if eligible), but funds may become limited after priority dates.
Attend a FAFSA workshop to get help completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
