Please Note: For your privacy, CLC's Financial Aid Office will shred any documentation or form received in our office that is not required for your file at that time.
The following list includes forms or process instructions that are not academic year specific, but can be used in any academic year.
Authorization for Release of Information Form: Federal Regulations do not allow CLC to talk to anyone about your financial aid information unless you have signed a release giving CLC permission. This form will allow you to give CLC that permission.
Consortium Agreement: Allows a student to receive aid from one college while counting the credits at each college to determine the credit level at which to pay financial aid. It is completed one term at a time. You are responsible to pay tuition at each college, even if you do complete a consortium.
A CLC Consortium should be completed if you are receiving financial aid from CLC, enrolled in a CLC program and would like to take credits at another college while you are taking credits at CLC.
Attending both CLC and another MNSCU college: Use this link to a dynamic forms consortium if the other college you are attending is a MNSCU college. A list of all MNSCU colleges is included in the dynamic form consortium you can complete online.
NON-MNSCU and CLC consortium (pdf) is a pdf document to be completed if the other college you are attending is not a MNSCU college.
FAFSA Signature correction: If your "Aid Application Status" explained that your file is rejected for signatures, please go to the www.fafsa.gov website to correct.
