Budget - Cost of Attendance

Central Piedmont Community College's Financial Aid Office offers Federal grants, Federal work-study, State grants, and Scholarships. These resources are designed to aid the students in the process of investing in their education. The primary objective of this office is to assist students and parents as they navigate the world of personal finances, financial aid, and debt management. For many of the students, this is the first time they have faced these challenges.

Federal regulations require a less than half-time budget calculation that is restricted to tuition, books, and transportation for students who are enrolled less than half-time. The following chart shows the budget for less than half time students for Pell purposes only. All other programs will be prorated appropriately. If a less than half-time enrollment status is a result of dropped or never attended classes, Pell will be reduced and an over award could occur. It is your responsibility as a student to repay any over award before receiving additional federal aid.
