Yes, Financial Aid IS Available!
Queen City College aims to provide every eligible student with the financial assistance needed to attend college.
All financial aid is awarded based on need, as determined by the Department of Education. Our financial aid officer determines your need based in part on an estimate of your costs for tuition, books, kits, transportation, housing, and personal expenses.
We offer Pell Grants, cash installment payments, and Veterans Administration Educational Benefits.
Federal Pell Grants
If you haven’t earned a bachelor’s or professional degree and you meet the government’s criteria, you are eligible to apply for this grant. Pell Grants usually do not have to be repaid. To apply, pick up an application from our financial aid officer or go to www.fafsa.ed.gov
Student loans are LOANS from the Federal Government that must be repaid with interest. Prospective students may apply on-line at www.studentloans.gov. We offer the Subsidized, Unsubsidized, and Plus loans for parents. As with the Pell Grant, Title IV funding is based on eligibility requirements that apply to all of the Federal Student Aid (FSA) programs.
The Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts Program (MyCAA) is a career development and employment assistance program sponsored by the Department of Defense (DOD). MyCAA helps military spouses pursue licenses, certificates, certifications or Associate’s Degrees (excluding General Studies and Liberal Arts) necessary for gainful employment in high demand, high growth Portable Career Fields and Occupations.

Cash Installment Payments
All students are eligible for monthly interest-free cash payments toward their tuition. Payments may be extended over the length of your program. You will be required to sign an installment note and make prompt payments. The balance must be paid in full before graduation.
Veterans Administration Educational Benefits
A veteran wishing to apply to use their VA benefits must complete VA Form 22-1990. Please visit https://www.ebenefits.va.gov/ebenefits/homepage or https://www.vets.gov/education/ for more information and eligibility requirements. After enrollment, if a student using VA benefits misses five consecutive days (or ten consecutive days with official military orders), his or her benefits will be canceled until regular attendance is acquired.
To retain your financial aid, you must meet the Satisfactory Progress Policy requirement and achieve at least 75 percent of the clock hours you attempt. You also must maintain the minimum grade point average for your program.
