College is exciting - a whole new way of thinking and doing things. If your childhood included abuse, neglect or foster care, your past may have complicated this journey.
Identify your strengths & passions & avoid old patterns to speed your progress. Take the next step into a hopeful future!
The Financial Aid Office is here to help you pay for your college education. We are here to help and to connect you with all available resources. We look forward to assisting you through the process and being part of your support system at CSM.
