What is the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet?

The Financial Aid College Financing Plan, formerly known as Financial Aid Shopping Sheet, is a U.S. Department of Education tool that participating colleges and universities use to notify financial aid applicants of their annual award package, cost of education and more. It is a standardized form, which is available to students on their self-serve college portal (i.e. CCM Titans Direct).  College Financing Plan is designed to simplify information. Additionally, students may also receive or view their term-by-term eligibility details in other formats (e.g. Award Letter or My Awards), used by their selected institution.

What is the Estimated Cost of Attendance?

The estimated cost of attendance (COA) is intended to provide you with an idea of what it will cost you to attend County College of Morris, and is based on your planned enrollment you indicated on filing your fafsa. The cost of attendance is an “estimated budget” amount for tuition and fees, room and board, books, transportation and miscellaneous personal expenses. Your actual expenses will vary based on actual enrollment, housing, and lifestyle choices, etc. Additionally, the shopping sheet may not include some fees (e.g., lab fees, art supplies, fines, external course related costs, etc.).

Attention: Amounts indicated on viewing your College Financing Plan (shopping sheet) is subject to change without prior notice. Please refer to your TITANS DIRECT – Financial Information.


What are the “Net Costs” on the Shopping Sheet?

The net cost on the Financial Aid College Financing Plan (Shopping Sheet) reflects a calculation showing the “estimated cost of attendance” minus the total grants and scholarships awarded to you based on your eligibility after the filing the FAFSA or New Jersey Alternative Financial Aid Application (NJ DREAMers only).
