Choose the Financial Aid That’s Right for You

Financial aid at Cabarrus College may include a mix of scholarships, loans, financial aid and work-study.

Payment Plans

A payment plan is an interest-free option offered by Cabarrus College that breaks down the large lump-sum payments due at the beginning of each semester into easy-to-manage monthly installments.  A fee of $50.00 per semester will be assessed each semester you establish a payment plan.

Payment plans can be combined with financial aid and student loans to help manage your total cost. Payment plans are established through the Business Office located in the Student Support Center.


There are two types of refunds.

Return check policy

If a check is returned for non-sufficient funds, a $25 return check fee will be placed on the student's account. In addition, holds are placed on the student's account until the original payment and fee are paid in full.
