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, see the Financial Aid Semester Calendar.

* Please note that financial aid does not cover the admissions application fee, admissions deposit, late registration fee, non-credit or non-degree applicable courses, CLEP/Dantes testing, transcript fee, graduation fee, portfolio assessment fees or certificate program costs. At this time, undocumented students do not qualify for state or federal financial aid. 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.
