The CARE program provides faculty and staff with resources and trainings to support students and colleagues.

Your education is one of the best investments you can make. CCC’s experienced instructors, excellent student-to-teacher ratios, and wide selection of associate degree programs can give you an excellent start toward your four-year degree at a fraction of the cost.


Once you’ve earned your degree with us, you can transfer to a four-year university through one of our transfer programs and partnerships. CCC has academic partnerships with Northern Arizona University, Arizona State University, the University of Arizona and Grand Canyon University.

If you are planning to transfer to four-year institution after CCC, you are required to meet with a transfer advisor early in your program so that the advisor can work with you to develop a timeline and coursework outline to facilitate your transfer.

CCC is committed to providing college-wide educational support and assistance for students with documented disabilities. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act requires that all CCC College programs, services, and facilities be accessible to individuals with disabilities except where the action necessary to achieve accessibility would result in a fundamental alteration of the program or would impose an undue burden. Disability Resources works closely with other college departments and community agencies to enhance and support your educational choices. All efforts will be made to promote independence and the highest extent of integration into our learning community.

An individual with a disability is an individual with a documented impairment that substantially limits one or more of that individual’s major life activities. Recognized disabilities include, but are not limited to, mobility impairments, deafness, hard of hearing, blindness, visual impairments, learning disabilities, chronic medical conditions, and psychological disorders.

Services are available for all CCC students who provide the required documentation and meet eligibility standards. Accommodations are established on an individual basis through an interactive process and are tailored to the needs of each student.

If students have a documented disability, they can arrange for accommodations by contacting the office of Disability Resources (DR). Students are encouraged to bring/send in documentation and meet with DR staff as soon as possible upon registering as a CCC student. Upon receipt of appropriate documentation, determination of eligibility as a student with a disability may take up to four weeks. A student may initiate this process at any time. Please visit the Disability Resources website for more detailed information regarding accommodations, documentation guidelines, the registration process, student responsibilities and timelines for accommodations requests.

If you have a documented disability and feel you require accommodations, please contact the Disability Resources office. Please be aware that you must contact the DR office each semester you request accommodations. This should occur at least four weeks before classes start. Without four weeks’ notice, we cannot assure the timely availability of materials or accommodation. Please visit the Disability Resources website for more detailed information: https://www.coconino.edu/disability-resources



CCC offers a variety of financial aid and scholarships to full and part-time students. Financial aid includes the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Federal Work Study (FWS), Federal Direct Stafford Student Loans, and Federal Direct PLUS Loans for parents, CCC Grant, CCC Retention Grant and CCC Scholarships. In order to apply for these types of Financial Aid, students are required to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) which is located online at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa. CCC is approved to train students under government educational programs for veterans and eligible dependents of deceased or disabled veterans. CCC has numerous scholarships available every year. Applications are usually accepted from late December to mid-March for the following academic year. Depending on the organization providing the scholarship, applications are reviewed based on need, academic achievement, and/or community involvement in various areas. Some CCC scholarships, waivers and grants are funded in part or in whole with Arizona state monies. These funds are governed by Arizona State laws. A person who is not a citizen of the United States, who is without lawful immigration status, and who is enrolled as a student at any university under the jurisdiction of the Arizona Board of Regents, or at any community college under the jurisdiction of a community college district in this state is not entitled to tuition waivers, fee waivers, grants, scholarship assistance, financial aid, tuition assistance or any other type of financial assistance that is subsidized or paid in whole or in part with state monies. Please contact Financial Aid and Veteran Services at finaid@coconino.edu for more information.

Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study (FWS) is an exciting opportunity available to students who show financial need as determined by the FAFSA. FWS jobs are listed on our website. Students interested in FWS must complete the FAFSA at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/fafsa and complete an application for employment on-line at https://www.coconino.edu/types-of-aid/federal-work-study. The Office of Student Financial Aid will then determine the student’s eligibility for FWS. CCC offices and community service agencies will review applications and contact students directly based on the skills and information listed on the application. FWS encourages community service work and work related to the student’s course of study. When completing the FAFSA for the next academic year, students exclude FWS earnings from their earned income. FWS earnings are considered financial aid and are not included in the calculation of EFC which can help some students qualify for more need-based financial aid in subsequent years.

Please contact the Office of Student Financial Aid at 928-226-4219 for more information.

Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) at Northern Arizona University

It can be hard trying to figure out the right steps to go to school. The Educational Opportunity Center helps students learn about these steps. The program helps students who want to go to CCC. It can also help students who want to go to school outside of Arizona. The program has information about schools throughout the United States. The program also helps students with admissions and financial aid at CCC. EOC staff are located at the CCC Fourth Street Campus and Lone Tree Campus Student Center.
