Federal and State Aid

Federal Financial Aid

Federal student aid is financial help for students enrolled in eligible programs to cover school expenses, including tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, personal expenses and transportation. Most federal aid is need based.

Learn more about the types of federal aid available at CLC.

State Aid

CLC also participates in several state financial aid programs, administered by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC). Some state financial aid is awarded on the basis of merit (grade point average), need or course of study.

To learn more about state financial aid and how to qualify, visit the Illinois Student Assistance Commission website.
