I didn't apply for financial aid because I really wouldn't have qualified but I know of others who have gotten financial aid for their pre-reqs.

But you'd be best off to talk to someone at a school's financial aid office. They have all the details and can look at your specific information to help you out better.
P.S. Shhhh...we can hear you!

As far as financial aid goes, my CC would only help if you were seeking a degree, regardless of the number of credit hours. Since I already had a degree and was only taking pre-requisites I got nothing. Maybe things will work out better at your CC.
