Top 5 Reasons to Enroll AT CET!




CET Offers Several Financial Options

Federal Pell Grant

Federal Pell Grants do not have to be repaid. Maximum amounts vary by year, but the amount awarded is based on individual need.


FederalSupplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

FSEOG funds are limited and are awarded only to students who have exceptional financial need. Students with exceptional need are those who have an expected family contribution (EFC) of zero toward their education (based on automated analysis of the FAFSA application), and are eligible for the Federal Pell Grant program during the same award year.


Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study provides part-time jobs for students who are in need of additional earnings to meet education expenses. Earnings from a Work Study job do not have to be repaid.


Grants Which do Not Have to be Repaid

(Contact your local CET and schedule an appointment today with a financial aid officer, to see if you are eligible).


Student Loans

CET participates in the Direct Loan Program (both subsidized and unsubsidized). Interest rates are fixed for the life of the loans and are not awarded based on personal credit history. A Subsidized Loan is awarded on the basis of financial need. The federal government “subsidizes” the interest during the time the student attends school and during grace and deferment periods.
