There are many options available to help students pay for college expenses! In addition to administering a comprehensive program of grants, loans and assistance in the form of on-campus employment, the Financial Aid Office can also provide resources for scholarship information.
To start the financial aid process, students need to complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Apply early to avoid delays in getting payment. Processing time can take up to 12 weeks.
The FAFSA is accessible online at www.fafsa.ed.gov where it is filed electronically. The Department of Education will process a Student Aid Report (SAR) from the FAFSA. This usually takes about three weeks. Upon receiving a SAR, the applicant should review it for accuracy. If there are corrections or questions about the data, contact PCC’s Financial Aid Office.
Students are responsible for contacting the Financial Aid Office (Go!Zone Enrollment Center, 549.3020) to check on how refunds could affect financial aid. In addition, if a student who is receiving Title IV Financial Aid funds, withdraws from school, a portion of the grant or loan funds must be returned. Under these circumstances, the student is also responsible for returning unearned assistance, according to the Higher Education Amendments of 1998. The Go!Zone Enrollment Center (719-549-3020) can provide additional information
All refunds from Financial Aid (overpayments or for returned books) will be put on the CCCS Refund debit card, or students may choose to have a check mailed to their local address.
