Scholarships, Grants, and Loans


Every college develops its own unique program of financial aid offerings to help students and parents meet the cost of attendance. The financial aid program at Clearwater Christian College includes typical programs available through federal and state government sources as well as a growing list of institutional scholarship programs. To discover what programs are considered when developing your personal aid packet, click on the link below.



How is Financial Aid Awarded?


Clearwater Christian College awards preliminary financial aid upon admission to the College. All students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as it is the basis for all financial aid. Florida residents are also required to submit applications for the FRAG (Florida Resident Access Grant), Florida's Bright Futures, and other possible state programs.

You Do Not Have to Apply for Institutional Scholarships


Institutional scholarships are awarded based upon your ACT and/or SAT score, financial aid need (FAFSA), and the information you provide on your application for admission (major, residency, interests). The sources of aid come from one or more scholarship programs or as a special CCC Award.

Because of their unique requirements, students interested in receiving a Business, Music or Servant Leadership scholarship must provide additional information to the CCC Financial Aid Office. Click on the appropriate links above to discover program requirements and to download the required forms.

All students are notified of their financial aid through an award letter. After the initial letter, you may receive an updated award letter when a change is made to your financial aid.

Students are required to update their FAFSA and FRAG (FL residents only) information each year. The amount awarded to returning students through institutional scholarship programs is determined by the College at the conclusion of each academic year.

You are advised to pursue your financial aid options as early as possible. Due to the nature of some institutional scholarship programs, you are encouraged to submit your updated FAFSA by March 1.
