There are several ways to fund your CIA education. In addition to scholarships, your financial aid package might also include federal aid—such as grants, loans, and work-study—and other state aid options.
Students may also apply for alternative loans from private lenders to help fund their education. These loans are generally based on credit history and complement any federal, state, school, or private funding you receive.
Remember that your eligibility for financial aid will only be determined after you have completed a Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA). You can find useful videos on how to complete this application as well as learn how to avoid errors. We recommend you file the FAFSA at least five to six months prior to the CIA enrollment season for which you are applying.
