Financial Aid Programs

Our Philosophy

Charter Oak State College recognizes that a college degree is an investment in your future and is committed to helping undergraduate and graduate students achieve their educational goals.

The College offers 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 financial need, enrollment plans, as well as federal, state, and institutional allocations of annual funds, and expected family contribution (EFC).

Descriptions of financial aid programs are subject to change without advance notice due to changes in federal, state, college policies, and/or changes in funding levels.

  • Please note that financial aid does not cover the admissions application fee, undergraduate or graduate admissions deposit, late registration fee, payment plan set-up fee, bad check fee, non-credit or non-degree applicable courses, COSC exams, CLEP/DSST testing, proctoring fee, transcript fee, graduation fee, diploma replacement fee, credential fees, contract learning fees, credit registry fees, portfolio assessment fees, non-credit assessment fees, practicum fees, Connecticut credit assessment program (CCAP) review, or certificate program costs.
  • At the time of this publication for academic year 2018-2019, there is no federal or state aid for undocumented students. Students are encouraged to seek scholarship opportunities from private sources. CT Students for a Dream is a resource available to undocumented students with an active list of scholarship resources.

    • Please watch for announcments from the Connecticut Board of Regents for Higher Education regarding Senate Bill 4 (An Act Assisting Students without Legal Immigration Status Wtih The Cost Of College) which was signed into law by Gov. Malloy on April 27, 2018.
