Aid, Benefits & Assistance
Apply for Financial Aid
Financial Aid includes a number of grant and loan programs to help you pay for college. The first step to receiving financial aid is to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Complete the FAFSA at FAFSA.gov and indicate Columbus State as your choice for college to ensure that your financial aid information is processed and that you receive your funds before fees are due.
Apply for Scholarships
Once you complete the FAFSA, you may qualify for different types of aid, including grants, loans, and some scholarships. However, many scholarships have their own application process.
Visit Columbus State's Scholarship Page for details. (Deadlines change, so keep checking back!)
