The Student Consumer Information regulations of the United States Department of Education require institutions participating in federally funded financial aid programs to make information about the institution available to current and prospective students. It is City College’s intention to provide complete and easy access to any information students need.
Performance Information Disclosure
The data presented here is for the past two years (2015-2016 and 2016-2017) for retention and placement and is calculated using the ABHES calculations. The student achievement rates for retention, placement, and/or licensure examination being disclosed are provided for information purposes only. Students should give the information appropriate weight in making an enrollment decision.
Retention Rate = (EE + G) / (BE + NS + RE)
EE = Ending Enrollment (Number of students in class, on clinical experience and/or leave of absence on June 30)
G = Graduates
BE = Beginning Enrollment (Number of students in class, on clinical experience and/or leave of absence on July 1)
NS = New Starts
RE = Re-Entries (number of students that re-enter into school who dropped from a previous annual report time period)
Placement Rate = (F + R)/(G-U)
F = Graduates placed in their field of training
R* = Graduates placed in a related field of training
G = Total graduates
U** = Graduates unavailable for placement
*Related field refers to a position wherein the majority of the graduate’s job functions are related to the skills and knowledge acquired through successful completion of the training program.
**Unavailable is defined only as documented: health-related issues, military obligations, incarceration, continuing education status, or death.
The third year of data (2014-2015) is included in the following document. These were the self-reported data submitted to ACICS (a prior accreditor) by the institution in that reporting year.
Retention and Placement as found in the report is based on the following formula:

(*) Students excluded in the placement rates are documented as unavailable for placement due to continuing education, military service, pregnancy, death, or other health-related issues, incarceration, or who are ineligible in the United States due to visa restrictions.
The student achievement rates for licensure examination disclosed are provided for information purposes only. Students should give the information appropriate weight in making an enrollment decision.
The Net Price Calculator is a tool for students and parents to use to get an estimate of what it may cost to attend City College each year.
The estimate includes both direct and indirect educational costs.
- Direct: Student’s responsibility and includes tuition and fees
- Indirect: Personal living expenses such as room and board, or other expenses that would be incurred whether the student lives with their parents or on their own
The net price calculator estimates the amount of grant funding a student may be eligible to receive, and does not include other financial assistance that might be available, such as Veteran’s benefits or federal loans.
It is important to understand that the information you receive from the calculator is a broad estimate. Many factors come into play when we award financial aid to students. Final eligibility for aid is subject to the student completing the FAFSA, meeting eligibility requirements, meeting priority deadlines, and availability of funds.
City College provides individual tuition planning with an experienced financial aid officer. If you still have questions about the calculator, talk to a financial aid officer.
Federal regulations require all colleges to provide this calculator tool on their website to allow students to compare costs.
Financial Aid Code of Conduct
City College is committed to engaging in quality business practices with a reputation that values integrity, respect and truthfulness, and a strong commitment to the highest ethical standards.
The following financial aid code of conduct supplements the existing code of conduct by prohibiting specific behaviors with regard to financial aid and procurement of loans.
- No action will be taken by financial aid staff that could be perceived as a conflict of interest. Prohibited behaviors include revenue-sharing arrangements with lenders, steering borrowers towards specific lenders, and/or accepting money, gifts, or other benefits from lenders, guarantee agencies, or loan servicers.
- Financial aid staff are prohibited from accepting compensation for consulting arrangements or contracts to provide service to or on behalf of a lender; or for service on an advisory board, commission, or any group who has responsibilities with respect to education loans.
Financial aid is available to those who qualify. To find out if you are eligible for assistance, contact a Financial Aid Representative at the City College campus you wish to attend. The representative will ask you to bring along certain financial information. Together, you’ll assess the cost of your education; find federal grants, loans, state aid, veterans benefits, private loans, work study, scholarships; and make a determination how much of your costs may be covered through financial assistance.
City College will defer payment on your bill for the amount covered by financial aid as long as you’ve submitted the required paperwork, your eligibility for the aid has been confirmed, and you have agreed to a Payment Plan for paying any balance due to the school that is not covered by financial aid.
As soon as you enroll in school, you should apply for financial aid. Some aid is limited and is more likely to be available if you apply early. You will find the appropriate application forms in your enrollment packet. Continuing students should apply as soon as possible after the new year’s FAFSA form is distributed. Application deadlines are announced yearly.
The Student Financial Services Department will assist you in applying for any aid for which you may be eligible. However, it is your responsibility to make sure that the funds are received by the school.
