United States Veteran

Pitt Community College ranks in the top 15% of schools nationwide by GI Jobs Magazine as a Military Friendly institution.  Your efforts in serving our country are greatly appreciated by our campus community and we’re honored you’ve selected PCC to further your education.  Congratulations on your achievements up to this point and we’re looking forward to seeing you continue your success as a Bulldog!  To continue your journey with PCC, carefully follow these steps:


Connecting your education to the career of your dreams is an important first step in making the decision to attend PCC.  Knowing the profession you plan to pursue will let you know which major to select when you apply for admission.


Since you’ve attended college in the past, you’ll be applying as a transfer student.  You’ll be asked to enter your College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC) account information, but you’ll be welcome to create a new account if you don’t already have one.


It’s your responsibility to have your official high school and college transcripts sent to us as soon as possible.  You can do so through your CFNC account or by working with your high school counselor.  Military transcripts proving completion of college-level courses should also be submitted for credit review. 

Vet Benefits

First time veteran applicants must complete the VA Form 22-1990 to apply for Active/Former Active Duty, Post 9/11 GI Bill, Selected Reserve, or Reserve Education Assistance Program (REAP) benefits.  Review our Veterans Affairs office website or apply through eBenefits or the VONAPP.

Financial Aid

Attending Pitt Community College is an affordable way to continue your education, but if you need help paying for your tuition, books, and school materials, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid is the best way to receive assistance.  If you’ve already for the FAFSA, please enter PCC’s school code 004062 to redirect your aid.  Once you’ve been admitted, you’re also welcome to complete applications for scholarships.


Completion of a placement test may be required if you have not already completed transferable English and math courses.  Submission of your high school transcript, college transcript, or SAT/ACT scores may allow you to be waived.


Brochures, commercials, and websites can help you learn more about PCC, but the best way to experience what makes Pitt an outstanding college is to complete a campus tour.


New Student Orientation is the best way to begin your education at PCC.  At your session, you’ll get the tools needed to be successful in your transition college, along with meeting your future classmates.  Completing a New Student Orientation session is mandatory.
