Does CCO offer Federal financial aid to students?

Is there a Federal Financial Aid for your courses or only the payment plan mentioned?

No, sorry. CCO is a business and private institution. We are not an official college that can offer financial aid as we do not participate in Federal student aid programs.

We do have payment plan options. Scroll to the bottom of any of our course info/enrollment pages, and you’ll see the payment options. Or you can contact CCO Helpdesk.

Career Schools

Career schools, also known as technical, vocational, or trade schools

  • may be public or private, although many are for-profit businesses;
  • typically offer programs that are two years or less; and
  • provide students with formal classes and hands-on experience related to their future career interests, from welding to cosmetology to medical imaging.

Technical schools teach the science behind the occupation, while vocational schools focus on hands-on application of skills needed to do the job. You may earn a diploma or a certificate, prepare for a licensing exam, or study to begin work as an apprentice or journeyman in a skilled trade.

Some schools offer distance learning, which allows you to access lectures or course materials online or through other electronic media. But, not every distance learning course or online degree is eligible for federal student aid.
