Financial Aid

Welcome to Financial Aid!

The mission of the Columbia College Financial Aid Office is to heighten awareness of financial aid opportunities and to ensure availability of financial aid for students who, without such assistance, would be unable to pursue their educational goals.

Please see the list of links on the left side of the page that will address most of your questions or concerns. If you need further assistance, please contact us:

Students with Last Names Beginning with A-L, please contact Dana M. Baker.
Students with Last Names Beginning with M-Z, please contact Kelsie Bonavia.


  • The Financial Aid Office will be CLOSED on Monday, June 9th for staff development training. We apologize for the inconvenience.
  • Please note our hours have changed for Summer, May 5 - August 15:
    Monday - Thursday: 7:30am - 5:30pm
    Friday - Sunday: Closed
  • Summer 2014 disbursement dates and information are now posted under Dates and Deadlines.
  • Remember to apply for the *new* 2014-2015 Board of Governors (BOG) Fee Waiver for Summer 2014 through Spring 2015! Without a new BOG on file, you may be dropped from your Summer 2014 and Fall 2014 classes for non-payment of fees. You can apply for the new BOG by submitting a 2014-2015 FAFSA or by filling out and submitting the BOG Fee Waiver form, available here and in the Columbia College Financial Aid Office. The deadline to submit a 2014-2015 BOG is the last day of the Spring 2015 semester.


    • (Past) April 14 - April 16: Financial Wellness (Part of Columbia College Wellness Week)
      Being financially well enables you to focus on other forms of wellness in your life. Come participate in a 30-minute mini-workshop, pick up some helpful information about how to make the most of your income, or ask a local Wells Fargo representative any and all of your banking questions. And, as always, check on your financial aid status!
