? 2018-2019 FAFSA
? 2018 Tennessee Promise Application
? Cleveland State Scholarship Application
? Application for Admission

“We know that a lot of people feel overwhelmed or intimidated by completing the FAFSA, but the CSCC Financial Aid staff is always happy to help,” stated Portia Cook, Financial Aid specialist. “Completing the FAFSA in October has a lot of great benefits, like allowing us to process your financial aid earlier rather than later. Also, Tennessee Promise students should have their FAFSA completed by Jan, 17, 2018, along with those wishing to qualify for the Tennessee Student Assistance Award.”

FAFSA Frenzy events are open to both current and incoming students. For more information on FAFSA Frenzy, contact Ms. Cook at 423-614-8710.
