The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the gateway to nine federal student aid programs, hundreds of state programs, and institutional aid. It can be overwhelming for students to complete fully and on time. The FAFSA form contained over 130 questions last year, about student and family assets, income and dependency. ccAchieve includes a walk-through guide to simplify the process of applying for FASFA. It is a tremendous time saver.
Timely CSS applications
For most students, staying on top of financial assistance applications is crucial. The College Scholarship Service Profile (CSS) gives colleges an inside view of the financial resources of the student and family. The CSS application form is much more detailed than the FAFSA form, and it is often due by the early admissions deadline, so student stress levels peak early. ccAchieve assists students by ensuring that they complete and submit this important form on time.
NCAA certification made simple
The NCAA Eligibility Center certifies the academic and amateur credentials of all college-bound student-athletes who wish to compete in NCAA Division I or II athletics. Some 400,000 students participate in sports at these levels across the country. ccAchieve provides a clear path for student athletes to become NCAA eligible with guidance about the certification process. Strong academics combined with athletics develops winners for life.
Most comprehensive scholarship databases
ccAchieve gives students the resources they need to research national scholarships. But we didn’t stop there. Advisors can easily set up and maintain a database of local scholarships within ccAchieve, to supplement our built-in national scholarship resources and financial aid tools. Local scholarships are more accessible, putting financial awards within reach of more students. This gives students a greater likelihood of winning a scholarship and achieving their dreams of college.
Easy-to-use Scholarship Application Tracker
ccAchieve’s Scholarship Application Tracker lets students track all of their scholarship and financial aid applications in one place, monitoring deadlines and application requirements regularly, while updating their current status. This allows students to successfully apply for more scholarships, which increases their chances of receiving one.
