Financial Aid

2024-2025 FAFSA is now available to complete


We encourage everyone to complete a FAFSA. An early FAFSA opens the opportunity to Grant fund available through the University. Late applicants can still qualify for Direct Loans and Pell Grants, if eligible.


Pell Promise

Central Connecticut State University is fully committed to the academic success of our Pell grant recipients and is honored to support them with The Pell Promise. Upon submission of the FAFSA, all full-time first time incoming and transfer qualifying students, admitted for the Fall 2023 semester, who live in Connecticut or a New England Regional state who have an Expected Family Contribution of zero will receive scholarships and grants that cover the full cost of tuition and fees. In other words, the out-of-pocket academic expenses that remain after your federal Pell grant and state aid funds are applied will be covered by the university. We hope this affords you financial and academic success as you pursue your degree at Central.
