Get Started with Financial Aid

When you make the decision to go to college, cost can be a major factor in where you actually get to go. Thankfully, Alabama’s community colleges have financial aid programs for new and current students that include grants, scholarships and other resources. These resources help ensure that everyone who wants to pursue a top-notch higher education can reasonably do so.

The first thing you want to do is complete the FAFSA, which is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. We’re here to help you get started!

Same Quality, Smaller Price Tag. We're the Smart Start academically and financially. Our community colleges oer the same core classes that you will take for any degree in Alabama, but at less than half the cost you will pay at a four-year university.

Why Start with the FAFSA?
While scholarships and other financial aid vary based on what college you attend, submitting the FAFSA gives you the most access to financial aid sources to pay for your education. In addition to federal resources, local funding sources such as scholarship committees and colleges also tend to require that you have completed the FAFSA.

To begin, you will need these documents to apply. Be sure to select the correct Aid Year and to include your community college’s code when it asks you where to send information.

If you need help completing the FAFSA or want more information on other funding sources for college, contact your local community college at the links below to learn more.
