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.
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:
If you're applying for financial aid for summer quarter 2014, please follow the 2013-2014 five-step application. For fall quarter 2014 and after, 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.
