Helping You Be Great

To help make an education at Cincinnati State even more affordable, our Financial Aid Office works closely with current and prospective students to help them learn about and apply for available scholarships, loans, grants, and work-study programs.

Financial Aid

At the same time students apply to Cincinnati State, they may also apply for Financial Aid. In order to be eligible to receive financial aid students must first submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, available online at Use Cincinnati State’s Title IV Code (010345) when filling out your FAFSA so that Cincinnati State’s Financial Aid Office receives your information as well.

Federal Work-Study

The Federal Work-Study Program provides part-time jobs on campus for students with proven financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay for educational expenses.


Grants are need-based financial aid awards offered by state or federal agencies that do not have to be repaid. Students who accept grants are usually required to meet certain academic standards.


Loans must be paid back to the lender over a period of time. Loan programs are sponsored by federal or state bodies or by private lenders.


Scholarships are financial awards that do not require repayment. Awards can be based on need, academic achievement, participation in athletics, or other criteria that reflect the values of the donor. Scholarships are available from Cincinnati State as well as outside programs. The annual deadline to apply for Cincinnati State scholarships is February 15.
