Federal and State Grants

CPTC offers both federal grants (Pell Grant, Supplemental, and Educational Opportunity Grant) and state grants (Washington State Need Grant). Grants are considered a form of gift aid because they do not have to be repaid, provided students attend their classes, do not reduce their enrollment on or before the 10th business day of the quarter, do not make a 100-percent withdrawal, do not stop attending their classes, and do not complete zero credits for a quarter.
