Paying for your college Don’t let tight finances keep you from a college education!

Central Carolina Community College’s Financial Aid Office will work with you to help you find available resources to pay for your education. There are a number of things you can do to plan for your college education:

If you can take college-level courses through your high school, do so. As a public high school student, you pay nothing for tuition or books. Check to make sure the credits will transfer. See “College credit in High School”, page 16. Save what money you can toward your education. Income from a parttime job can be a big help. Cut your cost for a quality education by attending Central Carolina Community College. The cost of tuition is far less than at state or private colleges, universities, and vocational schools. Use the Net Price Calculator at www.cccc/financialaid/ NetPriceCalculator to estimate your costs for attending CCCC. At CCCC, you can earn a certificate, diploma, or Associate in Applied Science degree in careers from accounting to welding at a fraction of the cost at other institutions. You can also earn an Associate in Arts, Associate in Fine Arts, or Associate in Science degree that will enable you to transfer to many four-year institutions with advanced class standing.
