Limited financial aid is available through CCBC as needed. Students can apply for financial aid by completing the financial aid application form and submitting it along with the other requested documents to the CCBC Finance Office by emailing email@example.com. If approved, financial aid may be applied to tuition costs only, and will cover a portion of the tuition costs of CCBC. Financial aid applications are due by July 15. The maximum amount of financial aid awarded to any one student is $1000; the average amount awarded is less than $1000.

Students whose parents are currently working as full-time pastors or missionaries are eligible for a pastoral discount through CCBC. This discount of $500 will be applied to a student's tuition costs. Pastoral discounts are not available to cover housing costs. Students apply for the pastoral discount on their initial application or by contacting the admissions office at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are aware that the two tuition payments may be a financial stretch for some of you. We have been praying for each of you and want to encourage you to communicate with us regarding any financial questions or needs so that we may be in agreement in prayer. God is so faithful! We see countless financial miracles EVERY YEAR – so don’t lose heart.
Galatians 6:9 admonishes us to “not grow weary in doing well, for we will receive a harvest in due season if we do not give up.” We don’t believe that finances alone should ever stop a student from doing what God is calling them to do. If finances are the only obstacle preventing you from coming to CCBC, contact us so we can discuss your situation specifically.
One way you can proactively seek out financial support is by sending a support letter to some of your family, friends, church members, home church, and co-workers. Download the 2018-19 support letter template here. Its a document we have already created that describes the program and what students will be involved in during the year. You can use it as a tool to send people to ask them to support you financially with either a one-time gift or with a monthly commitment. We also highly encourage that you personalize each support letter by writing a short introductory paragraph that is specific to the person you are addressing it to.

Another way to raise money is by creating a free GoFundMe account that you can share on social media or with friends and family.
We encourage students to not incur debt to pay for California Coast Bible College, but at times a loan that can be paid off monthly while a student is in school is the only option for a student. If a student decides to get a loan for their education we encourage them to see it like a financing option that will help them to be able to make monthly payments on thier tuition amount (to the lender) instead of having to pay all of it up front. Below are a few options students can explore to see to see if they can qualify for a loan:
1. Private student loan - private student loan resource (Credible) or best private student loan lenders (LendEDU)
2. Student credit card - best student credit cards for students with no credit (WalletHub) or all student credit cards (WalletHub)
3. Personal loan or credit card
