We strongly encourage all students and families to apply for financial aid, regardless of what you think you might receive. By filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, commonly referred to as the FAFSA, you’ll find out if you are eligible for valuable grants, student loans and work-study jobs. Never assume that you won’t qualify! Fill out the FAFSA form and get informed about your real options (be sure to use the Casper College School Code: 003928).

Below, we’ve provided links to information on the available types of aid. You might not be eligible for all of them, but it’s worth taking the time to learn about each one.

Continuing Education

Continuing Ed courses vary in cost, view the Continuing Education catalog for details.

Continuing education classes do not qualify for federal financial aid, but many of our workforce training classes qualify for Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funding. Contact the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services Casper Office at 307-234-4591 to see if you qualify.
