Frequently Asked Questions

Who qualifies to go to CCC for free in summer 2021?

All Class of 2021 high school graduates from high schools in Coconino County. This includes those who reside in Coconino County and completed their high school requirements through homeschooling or passing the GED test in spring 2021.

What does “free tuition” mean?

All students who take CCC classes in summer 2021 will be eligible for federal stimulus money to pay for some of their college costs this summer. For 2021 high school graduates from Coconino County, CCC will use some of its own stimulus money to pay CCC tuition and fees in summer 2021. Please keep in mind that you will still be responsible for the rest of your costs (textbooks, living expenses, etc.).

How do I apply for free tuition?

Apply for CCC admission and register for classes online using your MyCCC account or in person at one of the CCC campuses. If you are a 2021 high school graduate from Coconino County, CCC will automatically award your free tuition a few days after you have registered for classes, and an email will be sent to your CCC student email account stating that you have Financial Aid Awards.

Can I still get other grants and loans?

We encourage all students to complete the 2020-21 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and any available scholarship applications. Any Pell Grant or other grant and scholarship aid you will receive can be used to pay for expenses beyond your tuition and fees.

I cannot attend CCC in summer 2021. Can I use the free college certificate for a future semester?

No, CCC is only able to offer free tuition for the summer 2021 semester. However, anyone who takes classes in Fall 2021 will be eligible to receive federal stimulus money to help pay for their costs.

How many credits can I take this summer for free?

We recommend that you take between 3 and 9 credits. Summer semester is only 8 weeks long, so you can expect to spend two hours in class and up to four hours on homework for every credit you take. Most classes are 3-5 credits each. Students may not take more than 12 credits during the summer session.
