We at PCC make every effort to meet as much of each student's need as possible. However, you should not expect to have 100% of your need met through financial aid funds. You and your parents (if applicable) are expected to contribute toward educational expenses first.

General Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for financial aid you must:

  • Have financial need. Your level of need is determined by the financial need formula: Student's Cost of Attendance - Estimated Family Contribution = Financial Need

  • Be enrolled in an eligible program of study
  • Be working toward a degree/certificate

  • Be a US Citizen or eligible non-citizen

  • Have a valid social security number
