Student Financial Aid

Charter Oak State College recognizes that a college degree is an investment in your future and we are committed to helping you achieve your educational goals.

We offer a variety of financial aid programs in the form of grants, scholarships, and loans to eligible students. The amount and type of assistance for most programs will be dependent on your financial need, enrollment plans, as well as federal, state and institutional allocations of annual funds, and expected family contribution (EFC).

While federal student aid will be awarded to all eligible students on a continuous basis during the academic year, our priority consideration dates are:

  • Summer '14:  Financial Aid Applicants April 1
  • Fall '14: Returning Students April 1
  • Fall '14: New Students June 1

*Please note that financial aid does not cover the admissions application fee, late fees, non-credit courses, CLEP/Dantes testing, transcript fees, portfolio assessment fees or certificate program costs. Additionally, there is no federal, state, or institutional aid for international or undocumented students.
