Paying for College

Financial Aid

There are several types of financial aid available to CCV students including grants, low-interest loans, and work-study opportunities. All financial aid programs have specific eligibility requirements, application forms, and deadlines. Complete information about financial aid is available in the Student Planner and at www.ccv.edu.

Veterans’ Benefits

CCV’s programs, in accordance with Veterans Administration (V.A.) criteria, are approved by the Vermont Department of Education for veterans’ education leading to the associate degree and training benefits. Eligibility is established by the V.A. To qualify for assistance, veterans must comply with the following V.A. expectations and regulations:

  • enroll in courses approved for V.A. benefits;
  • enroll in a degree program;
  • comply with all CCV policies and procedures including drops, withdrawals, and periods of non-attendance; and
  • successfully complete coursework for which they are enrolled.

Veterans will be responsible for full or partial repayment of educational benefits if the above conditions are not met. A veteran’s participation in independent study or internship must be preapproved by the V.A. prior to enrollment. For information about veterans’ benefits and support go to www.ccv.edu/veterans_benefits.


CCV students are awarded numerous internal and external scholarships each year to assist in meeting their expenses. Students should contact an academic advisor or financial aid counselor for applications, or consult the portal.

Federal/State Programs

CCV receives federal and state grants to provide services to eligible CCV students and programs. These programs include the federal TRIO/Student Support Services program and the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Applied Technology Act of 2007, and varied state-funded programs.
