Financial aid is any source of funds that are available to help you pay for college. We recommend that you submit a financial aid application to see what you may qualify for! 

    • If you are a US Citizen or Permanent Resident, complete the FAFSA application.
    • If you are NOT a US Citizen or Permanent Resident but meet AB 540 criteria, you may be eligible for the California Dream Act.


    • The PCC School Code is 1261.
    • You will need to apply for financial aid every academic year.
    • If you need help, please visit the Virtual Support Center
