The Financial Aid Office at Copiah-Lincoln administers a variety of programs designed to assist students and their families in meeting the cost to attend Copiah-Lincoln. Financial aid is divided into four major categories: scholarships, grants, part-time employment, and loans.
Scholarships are gift programs that do not have to be repaid. Scholarships are typically awarded for academic achievement, athletics, and participation in certain activities.
Grants are gift aid that do not have to be repaid. Grants usually require a demonstration of financial need. Some grants require academic promise as well as financial need.

The availability of funds is a very important factor relative to the total number of students who receive financial aid. Students must be accepted for admission and currently enrolled in order to receive financial aid. Financial aid is awarded in various amounts for one academic term at a time. Most financial aid is not automatically renewable. All recipients of financial aid must reapply annually.
It is the intention of the Financial Aid Office to serve the students. Please do not hesitate to ask for assistance.
