How does the FAFSA work for community colleges?
This is a basic question for anyone who understands the FAFSA a bit more than I do, and I apologize if I've put this in the wrong forum.
My CC has sent me an e-mail explaining that they've accepted my FAFSA and that I can go and check on my award details. Currently, it says my cost of attendance is about $11,000. I don't understand why it's so high if it's a CC. Is there something I'm not getting here, or is $11,000 really the cost of a year's attendance at a public, community college?
Sorry if the question seems stupid, but I'm genuinely baffled and don't understand why that number is so high.
