Part-time Student Aid

Part-time degree seeking students qualify for limited aid.  Each Student that will be enrolling for less than 12 credit hours each term, should notify our office as soon as possible financialaid@cn.edu, so that we may more accurately reflect aid that you are eligible to receive.  In generating your Award Letter, we may have assumed full-time attendance.  Your student bill will then be incorrectly listing full-time aid with part-time charges, giving you the impression that you may not owe for your registered courses.

At the census date each term (last day to make a schedule change), our office will adjust aid downward based upon your actual enrollment if less than full-time. 

*IMPORTANT NOTE: Please be aware that after the census date, you should take care to NOT change your schedule unless you consult with our office first.  This is extremely important for TN HOPE Scholarship recipients.  TN HOPE recipients that fail to contact our office before making a schedule change after the census date could forfeit TN HOPE Scholarship funding. 

Below are some important aid programs and the amounts that you may qualify based on attendance each term.  If you have other programs not listed, please contact our office so that we may assist you:
