Federal School Code for Copiah-Lincoln Community College (002402)

The Financial Aid Office at Copiah-Lincoln Community College administers a variety of programs designed to assist students and their families in meeting the cost of attending Co-Lin. Financial aid is offered in a package of scholarships, grants, part-time employment, and/or loans. Awards cannot exceed the cost of attendance budget. Grants and scholarships are financial aid resources that do not have to be repaid. Student loans have to be repaid with interest. Scholarships are awarded for academic achievement, athletics, and service to the college.

Federal grants require a demonstration of financial need and making satisfactory academic progress. State grants are awarded based on ACT scores, GPAs, and a minimum enrollment and completion of 15 credit hours per semester.

Part-time employment on campus provides opportunities for students to earn money to apply toward their educational costs.

Financial aid awards are made to students who have been accepted for admission and are enrolled in courses needed for graduation in their program of study. You must re-apply annually for federal and state grants, and Foundation scholarships.

Students can begin using financial aid for purchases in the Co-Lin Bookstore on Friday, August 3, 2018.

It is the intention of the Financial Aid Office to serve our students. Please do not hesitate to ask for assistance. If you have any financial aid concerns, you can email the Financial Aid Office at financialaidinfo@colin.edu.
