NOTE: the priority deadline for all financial aid information to be received is June 1. That will ensure that eligible students will have financial aid for fall registration.
2018 – 2019 FAFSA Opened October 1. The 2018 – 2019 FAFSA uses 2016 taxes.
The purpose of all financial aid awarded at Craven Community College is to provide monetary assistance to students who, without the receipt of aid, would be unable to begin or continue their studies at this institution.
Financial Aid Application Procedures
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You may apply online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. This must be completed in order to receive any Federal and State aid, and some scholarships. You will need a FSA ID and password to sign your FAFSA online. If you have to include your parent’s information on the FAFSA, your parents will need a FSA ID and password. Craven’s priority deadline is June 1 of each year to ensure aid is available for Fall semester.
Once Craven receives your processed FAFSA, we will send an email to your student email account letting you know if any additional information is needed to complete your financial aid file. You will need to schedule an appointment with the appropriate Financial Aid office:
- New Bern Campus Appointment Scheduler
- Havelock Campus Appointment Scheduler
- Veteran Affairs Appointment Scheduler
- Veteran and Dependent Advising Scheduler
Submit any required documents to the Financial Aid Office during your appointment. Please respond promptly to requests for information.
Ensure all documents have been received by admissions. Admissions will need to be completed in order to receive Federal or State aid.
You will receive notification from Financial Aid on your next step.
