Financial Aid and Tuition

At City Colleges of Chicago, we are dedicated to helping students get the assistance they may need to attend one of our seven colleges. The Financial Aid Offices at City Colleges of Chicago work closely with students and families to provide financial assistance in the form of grants, loans, and work-study from federal and state resources. The Financial Aid Office is your guide and resource to help make college affordable. Please visit your respective college’s Financial Aid Office for more information regarding the financial aid process.
