  • Financial Aid
  • Applying for Financial Aid

    There are several financial resources available for you if you wish to apply for financial assistance. You should start the process by completing the application for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application is completed online at studentaid.gov and is completed in an interview style that is less intimidating.  It can be confusing knowing which application is for what year. 

    • The 2019-2020 FAFSA covers the Fall 2019, Spring 2020 and Summer 2020 terms and uses your 2017 income information. 

    The applications for the academic year beginning in August are available October 1 of the year preceding the Fall semester (example: the 2019-2020 FAFSA became available October 1, 2018). Students and parents are able to sign the FAFSA using a FSA ID while they are applying. If you forgot your FSA ID, you may go to the website and they will either email it to you or you can choose to have it display on the computer.

      Note: Students who are currently in high school (or currently being home schooled) are not eligible for Federal or State financial aid funding.
    • Student Information Verification

      If you are asked to verify your reported information, please submit copies of the following documents that apply to your situation:

      • Verification Form
      • Signed copy of the Federal Tax transcript student's and/or parents'. For academic year 2019-2020, we will need a signed copy of your and/or your parents' 2017 Federal Income Tax transcript. If you don't have a copy, you may request a copy from the IRS at 1-800-908-9946. The best way to verify income is by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool that is part of the FAFSA on the Web. If you have not already used the tool, go to studentaid.gov, log in to your FAFSA record, select "Make FAFSA Corrections," and navigate to the Financial Information section of the form. From there, follow the instructions to determine if you are eligible to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to transfer 2017 IRS income tax information info your FAFSA. 
      • Depending on you and your parent’s situation, additional documentation may be requested.

      Deadlines to process verification for each semester are as follows:

      • Fall – December 1st
      • Spring – May 1st
      • Summer – August 1st

    • Already Completed a 2019-2020 FAFSA?

      If you have already completed the FAFSA and are transferring into Pueblo Community College, just go back into studentaid.gov to add PCC to your college list. PCC's school code is 014829. We will get your information electronically in 4-6 working days. No other documentation is necessary at this time, until the application is processed by the Department of Education. However, it may be necessary for the school to request more information after the results are received. You will be notified by email, so it is imperative to activate and check your student issued email account.
