We have heard that our CCA students may be receiving letters or email messages offering help to find grants and scholarships for college. Some of these offers require students to pay a fee. PLEASE BE CAUTIOUS OF THESE OFFERS as students SHOULD NEVER HAVE TO PAY TO APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID OF ANY TYPE including applications for grants or scholarships. Legitimate financial aid applications do not charge a fee (for example, the FREE Application for Federal Student Aid FAFSA).
These letters/messages may look very official and may even have a logo that resembles federal government logos, or they may have official-sounding names like “Student Financial Resource Center”. However, they typically have no association with the government or any college, and cannot guarantee that you will receive any type of financial aid. If you are suspicious of any financial aid correspondence that you receive, please contact the CCA Financial Aid Office for help.
