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, there are priority consideration dates that you should know. For more information, please open the Student Portal, ACORN, and click on the Financial Aid tab and then click the Announcements link in the left menu bar.

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