Financial Aid

The Office of Financial Aid works closely with students to navigate the financial aid application process.

Cincinnati State offers financial aid in the form of grants, loans, scholarships, and work-study. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) evaluates a student’s need for various types of financial aid.

Follett Bookstore

If a student’s pending financial aid exceeds their tuition and fees, they may use their excess aid for purchases at the College’s Follett Bookstore (ATLC Building) with their SurgeCard.
