Cost & Financial Aid

As a two-year public community and technical college, Century College receives funding from the State of Minnesota, keeping tuition rates significantly lower than private colleges and universities. With affordable tuition rates and financial aid and scholarship opportunities, our students avoid student loan debt.

Eligibility for financial aid is determined annually based on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Century College’s Federal School Code is 010546.

Each year, the Century College Foundation awards more than $300,000 in scholarships to Century College students involved in several areas of study. Students are encouraged to create an account and apply for scholarships online.

Prerequisites

After participating in a series of planning seminars, students will select courses that form their Individualized Studies award plan. This can be done in three different ways:

  • Multidisciplinary coursework is from more than one discipline in unrelated areas
  • Interdisciplinary coursework is from more than one discipline but the coursework is tied together thematically
  • Intradisciplinary coursework is from within the same discipline

Each student will develop and document their Individualized Studies award. A template will guide students and include:

  • Development of Educational Goals Statement
  • Determination of Course Requirements (for AS) or Career/Occupational Requirements (for AAS and diploma)
  • Determination of General Education/MnTC Courses
  • Consultation with college/university representatives regarding transfer opportunities and/or professionals in the field of interest

View the program website, or contact an advisor for information on Individualized Studies planning seminars, credit for prior learning options, and the development, review, and approval process of an award plan.
