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 www.FAFSA.ed.gov and is completed in an interview style that is less intimidating. It can be confusing knowing which application is for what year.
• The 2014-2015 FAFSA covers the Fall 2014, Spring 2015 and Summer 2015 terms. • The 2015-2016 FAFSA covers the Fall 2015, Spring 2016 and Summer 2016 terms
The applications for the academic year beginning in August are available January 2 of that year. Students and parents are able to sign the FAFSA using a PIN while they are applying. If you forgot your PIN, 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.

If you have already completed the FAFSA and are transferring into Pueblo Community College, just go back into www.fafsa.ed.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.
