Steps for Applying for Financial Aid

Step 1 - Complete the FAFSA

You can apply for financial aid online or you can bring information into the Financial Aid Office and we can help you complete your application at the self-help terminals.

For the 2014-2015 school year (Fall 2014, Spring 2015 & Summer 2015) you will need to provide the following:

  • Your 2013 Federal Taxes and W2's
  • Proof of any untaxed income for 2013 that is requested on the FAFSA
If you are a dependent student as defined by the Department of Education you must provide tax and income information for your parents.

You must have a Federal Student Aid PIN in order to electronically sign your FAFSA. You can apply for your PIN at http://www.pin.ed.gov/PINWebApp/pinindex.jsp.

CCC's Federal school code for the FAFSA for financial aid is 004743.

Step 2 - Receive your SAR (Student Aid Report)

Check your SAR for accuracy. If corrections need to be made, contact the CCC Financial Aid Office at 575.769.4060.

Submit any requested documents
CCC will receive your information in approximately one week. At that time additional information may be required in order to complete your file. You will be notified via your official CCC email account of what information is still needed to complete your file.

For the 2014-2015 school year, be prepared to provide the following:
  • Copies of your 2013 W2's (and your parents, if you are a dependent student)
  • 2013 IRS Tax Transcripts (and your parents, if you are a dependent student)
  • Proof of any untaxed income that may have been reported on your SAR
  • Additional information as requested
Step 3 - Charge to Your Financial Aid

Students wanting to charge tuition, fees, books and supplies to available financial aid must set up a Pending Financial Aid Payment Plan. Please note: You will not automatically be dropped from your classes if you choose not to attend your classes. It is your responsibility to drop or withdraw from the classes if you are unable to complete your Pell file or become otherwise ineligible. If you are registered in classes and your financial aid is cancelled for any reason, you will owe all charges incurred at Clovis Community College.

Step 4 - Maintain Your Eligibility

Academic Progress is reviewed at the end of every semester. You must maintain a 2.00 GPA and a completion rate of 67% or greater. If you do not maintain this standard a financial aid letter of appeals must be written and submitted to the Financial Aid Appeals Committee by the Tuesday before classes start for the semester you wish to attend.

Once students have attempted 150% of the amount of hours it takes to earn your degree (including all transfer hours, audit hours, and withdrawals) a letter of appeals must be written and submitted to the Financial Aid Appeals Committee.
