How much will it cost to go to CLC?
The general cost information the Financial Aid Office uses to determine your financial aid eligibility is based on tuition/fees, room/board, transportation and personal/miscellaneous costs.  Use the Financial Aid Cost of Attendance to get a basic idea of what college will cost. These costs may change slightly each year. For more specific tuition and fee information click on this link to the Business Office.

Student receiving Financial Aid (which includes grants, work study and loans)
You have rights and responsibilities in regards to the financial aid you receive.  Please click on this link Rights and Responsibilities to read what you have the right to expect and are responsible for.
Students may be required to return a portion of their financial aid (Title IV) due to not completing all their classes in a semester.  CLC processes “Return to Title IV” calculations within 30 days of the date it is determined that the student withdrew or stopped attending. CLC returns funds back to the Title IV programs within 45 days of that date.
