The primary function of the Financial Aid Office is to provide assistance in obtaining financial aid to students who would otherwise be unable to attend college due to economic limitations.
Capital Community College provides a variety of financial aid programs in the form of scholarships, grants, loans and jobs to eligible students. The amount and type of aid received is dependent upon the student’s financial need as well as annual federal and state allocations.
Financial Aid Office personnel are available to assist students in all phases of the financial aid process and in the financial planning aspects of higher education. They will answer any questions pertaining to financial aid and give counsel as needed.
In order to receive financial aid, students must:
- Be accepted for admission to the college and enrolled in a degree or eligible certificate program.
- Be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States or Trust Territories.
- Be in good academic standing and making satisfactory academic progress.
- Be in compliance with draft regulation requirements.
- Not be in default on any previous student loan.

Scholarships & Financial Aid for Undocumented Students
Higher education can be a big cost for anyone, and undocumented students are no exception. In fact, undocumented students likely do not have easy access to the same financial aid resources as other students and may have to work harder to cover their expenses.
Fortunately, many schools and organizations offer grants and scholarships to undocumented students interested in higher education, including healthcare majors. All you need to do is know where to look. Scholarships like those listed below are financial benefits awarded to students who show exceptional promise. These awards often cover tuition and other educated-related expenses. They do not need to be repaid and are renewable in some cases.
