Applying for Financial Aid

Step 1:  Fill Out a FAFSA

There are several financial resources available for you if you wish to apply for financial assistance.  The first step in apply for financial aid is completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or the FAFSA.  The FAFSA must be completed each year.



Please be aware that fraudulent websites exist. The FAFSA is always free to complete and you should never be charged to complete the application.

Gather these documents and use them to complete the application here.  PCC’s school code is 014829.

Step 2:  Apply for Scholarships

At PCC there are many scholarship opportunities available.  While it isn’t required, it is a good idea to apply for additional scholarships after you have completed the FAFSA.  Scholarships are funds that do not have to be repaid.

Browse the scholarship opportunities that are available here.

Step 3:  Check Your Status

Let’s make sure you haven’t missed anything.  For some students, additional paperwork is needed.  It’s important to visit your myPCC student portal.  Click on Financial Aid Requirements from your dashboard, select the appropriate year, and see if you have Unsatisfied Requirements.  If you need assistance or have questions regarding the requirements please email or call the financial aid office.

If you do not have any unsatisfied requirements, you can view your financial aid offers.  Click on the Financial Aid Offer icon from your dashboard and select the appropriate year. 

Please remember that if you do have unsatisfied requirements, you won’t be eligible for financial aid until the requirements are satisfied and processed.
