Financial Aid & Scholarships

MFA students are eligible for apply for CCAD grants and scholarships, federal loans and workstudy and some CCAD scholarships.

To apply for any federal aid students must first fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online (CCAD's code number is 003039). MFA candidates should complete the FAFSA by February 15.

The results of the FAFSA will determine eligibility for CCAD grants and federal loans. Portfolios submitted as part of the admission process automatically serve as applications for CCAD's merit scholarships. Workstudy may be awarded once students are on campus. 

MFA students may be eligible to apply for graduate teaching associate positions during their second year in the program. Please note, teaching is not a requirement of CCAD's graduate degree nor are positions guaranteed.

If you have any questions or would like to meet with a financial aid officer, contact CCAD's Financial Aid office via email (financialaid AT ccad DOT edu) or 614.222.3295.
