The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid is a resource to provide access to Pell Grants, other state and federal aid, and scholarships.
A college education will be one of the most important investments a student and family will make. Our mission is to provide students with access to financial aid services for the attainment and completion of education. We realize the financial aid process can seem to be an unnerving task. Our goal is to provide parents and most importantly, students with responsible, efficient, and customer friendly financial services to empower the student to take personal control of their educational process.
The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid is a resource that will be invaluable during your matriculation at Catawba Valley Community College. Students will find not only information regarding the policies and procedures, but also helpful links that will point them to external resources to assist them with understanding their financial aid options. We urge students to review all the resources and information provided and make decisions wisely. Remember, financial aid, like all the rest of a student's financial matters, should be governed very carefully.
