Welcome to the Financial Aid Section of WebAdvisor

INCOMING STUDENTS FOR 2017-2018: This section of WebAdvisor is set up for returning students. If you are an incoming student, please refer to the hard copy Financial Aid Notification and packet you received via regular mail. If you did not receive this or have any questions or concerns, contact our office at (313) 664-7495. Thank you!

On the following pages you will have the opportunity to review and accept your financial aid awards for the 2017-2018 academic year. All the additional information normally contained in the old paper financial aid packages can also be found here, including:

The aid included here is what you are eligible for based on the results of your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). If your acceptance screen is blank, or only a CCS Award or Scholarship is listed, it most likely means your aid has not been packaged/applied yet. Please contact the Financial Aid Office at (313) 664-7495 or finaid@collegeforcreativestudies.edu if you have questions or concerns.

Through mid August all aid will be calculated based on full-time enrollment. In mid August we will begin to adjust aid for students enrolled part-time. Aid will continue to be adjusted back and forth as students drop and add courses. This process, called proration, will continue through the date that 100% charges apply. Winter aid will be calculated at the full-time figure until enrollment information is available for winter semester. If you will be enrolled less than full-time (less than 12 credits) and would like a calculation of your out of pocket expense, please contact our office.

We strongly encourage you to have all financing in order before the charges apply to avoid a balance you cannot pay. The last day to drop classes for a 100% refund is Wednesday, September 13th for Fall 2017 and Wednesday, January 17th for Winter 2018. It is important to note that private/alternative loans have more paper work required and take longer to process than they did in the past. Stay in touch with your lender and to make sure you have adequate time for your loan to be fully approved and ready for processing (3-4 weeks is recommended).

Again, please do not hesitate to stop by the office or contact us via phone (313.664.7495) or email (finaid@collegeforcreativestudies.edu) if we can be of any assistance.
