Financial Aid, Grants and Work Study

The Financial Aid Office helps students seeking financial aid to pay for the costs of attending Crafton Hills College. Money is provided to cover the cost of enrollment fees, books, transportation and partial living expenses. Students may be working and still qualify for financial assistance. The basic type of financial aid: grants and self-help (such as work study). Grants are awarded on the basis of financial need and do not require repayment. Work study offers students the opportunity to earn a portion of their college expenses through part-time employment during the school year.


The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be used when applying for financial aid. Applying on time is critical. Be sure to contact the Financial Aid Office regarding deadlines. The completed FAFSA should be done online at after October 1st, but no later than the last day of the previous spring semester, in order to ensure funds will be available for the beginning of the fall semester in August.  Our school code is 009272.  After submitting your FAFSA on-line, you must come into the financial aid office approximately 3 days later to open your file in the financial aid office. Regardless if you are a new student or a returning student, everyone must open a new file each year. It is important, however, that all requested documentation be returned as soon as possible. Financial aid awards are made only after a student’s file is complete. On-time applicants that have returned all requested materials, can expect to receive an electronic financial aid award letter by July in their Web Advisor account. Students receiving financial aid are expected to make satisfactory academic progress toward their educational goal. This includes completing all classes for regardless if aid is received. The Financial Aid staff is here to assist you. Students often find applying for financial aid a difficult and confusing process. Those needing help or advice are encouraged to go to the Financial Aid Office.  For information call 909.389.3240.
