Chicago Star Scholarship at City Colleges of Chicago

Starting with City Colleges’ Fall 2015 semester, students who graduate from CPS in Spring 2015 or after with a 3.0 GPA who test completion-ready in math and English will be able to pursue an associate degree at City Colleges of Chicago at no cost – free tuition, fees, and books.

In order to receive the Star Scholarship, students must apply for financial aid so that any financial aid dollars can be applied first as part of the waiver. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) can be found here. Undocumented students should fill out this form​​​ instead.
