Applying for Financial Aid
Do not wait for a bill from CCBC or Towson University to
apply for financial aid.
Students may begin applying for financial aid assistance now
at www.fafsa.gov. Information regarding estimated expenses as well as a
financial aid worksheet are available at the
Freshman Transition Program.
All financial aid will be administered by CCBC. Financial

Alternative and Parent PLUS loans
Financial aid can be used to
pay both bills. Aid is first applied to the CCBC tuition bill. Remaining
aid can be used to pay the Towson University bill.
You may be selected for verification based
on the information
you provide on your FAFSA. Before a financial aid award letter can be
generated, you must submit all requested documentation. If you have received a Maryland State Scholarship, grant
or private scholarship, you must go online to

organization to advise them that you are changing institutions and to
redirect your funds to CCBC.
Your financial aid award may not cover the
total cost of your educational expenses. We encourage your
parents to apply for a Parent PLUS Loan to pay for
educational costs not covered by other forms of financial
aid. You may also want to consider applying for a student
loan. Both loans require paper applications that are
specific to the Freshman Transition Program. Loan
applications can be found at the

the option for parents to make PLUS loan balances (the amount left over
