FAFSA and scholarship applications are now available

The Cochise College Financial Aid Office is reminding students who are planning to attend college in the fall that now is the time to complete the 2018-2019 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Financial aid processing may require several steps and can take six to eight weeks to complete. Additional documentation may be required from students who have already begun the form. Students can check their college account to find out if additional documentation is needed.

Cochise College’s online STARS scholarship application system is also open for students applying for financial aid for the 2018 – 2019 academic year.

March 31 is the STARS scholarship application deadline.

May 1 is the priority deadline for Financial Aid.

All students at Cochise College can apply for scholarships through the STARS link above. Scholarships are available for both full- and part-time students. Generally, students need to be enrolled in six or more credits to qualify. Scholarships do not need to be repaid but are considered part of a student’s financial aid package.

To make the most of your scholarship and financial aid opportunities, complete the STARS application process, file a FAFSA by May 1, and register for the fall semester before the beginning of June.
