City Colleges of Chicago Supports Evacuees from Puerto Rico
City Colleges of Chicago continues to welcome our fellow Americans who are seeking to further their education after being displaced following Hurricane Maria, and has put in place the following supports:
CCC is an open access institution, which accepts all students who apply. We will work with impacted students to determine course placement and transfer credit.
CCC allows impacted individuals to take advantage of in-district tuition rates by using their Puerto Rico IDs, waiving the usual 6-month residency requirement, with evidence of immediate prior residency in a storm-impacted area.
CCC assists students in transferring their federal financial aid to CCC. CCC follows federal financial aid guidelines regarding students impacted.
Students are eligible for internal and external scholarship funds, as available, and advisors will assist students in ensuring that they can meet their financial responsibility.
CCC’s Disaster Relief Scholarship for those displaced as a result of hurricanes Maria, Harvey, and Irene
This scholarship pays for the tuition and books of eligible students who are pursuing an advanced certificate or associate degree at CCC.
