Eligibility for Payment from Federal or State Agencies, Loans, Grants, or Scholarships

Students who plan to attend CSI under a program provided by federal or state agencies must submit satisfactory evidence of eligibility for admittance under such a program at the time of enrollment. This may be accomplished by submitting official authorization from the agency at the time of enrollment or by direct advice in writing to the college from said agency prior to enrollment.

Veterans’ benefits are payable to the individual recipient. Therefore, evidence of this eligibility cannot be accepted in lieu of cash.

Evidence of approved scholarships, grants, and loans from CSI administered funds will be accepted in lieu of cash.

NOTE: In all instances, arrangements regarding any of the above must be made in writing prior to enrollment.

The concept behind most financial aid programs is that the student and his/her parent(s) and/or spouse, have the primary obligation to pay for the student’s education. The student is expected to use his/her own savings and accept employment to assist in meeting his/her educational expenses. The amount of financial aid a student may receive is mostly based on the extent of his/her financial need. Need is determined by an examination of the financial resources of the student and his/her family. In addition to need-based financial aid, CSI also offers some merit-based scholarships to eligible students. Please note: The content in the Financial Aid & Scholarships section of the catalog is subject to change based on federal, state, and school regulations and policies.
