What is Financial Aid?

Financial aid is any form of assistance that comes from some organized body that assists a student with the costs of attending college. These forms consist of federal, state, institutional and private funds that are used to assist students in funding their education. Scholarships and grants are “free money “ that you do not pay back, however loans are considered as self-help and you are required to pay them back when a student becomes enrolled less than half-time or graduates. When you seek aid, we will consider you for all forms of aid available.

  • After your fees and any other charges on your CBS student account are paid, any remaining financial aid will be refunded to you.
  • Generally, if the Office of Financial Aid has disbursed aid to your student account and a credit is created, you can expect to receive a refund approximately 30-45 days after Census Date.
  • Refund checks are mailed to your home address. For more information contact the Financial Aid Office as follows:
