Priority Deadlines for Financial Aid
Financial aid will be processed and completed for students who file a FAFSA and turn in all paperwork by the following deadlines:
- Summer 2021 Term – March 15, 2021 (2020-2021 FAFSA form)
- Fall 2021 Term – May 15, 2021 (2021-2022 FAFSA form)
- Spring 2022 – October 15, 2021 (2021-2022 FAFSA form)
*Once you submit your FAFSA to PCC, we will receive it within 3-5 days and will contact you with any further updates. Please check your Portal/email for additional documentation required.*
We will continue to review and process applications received after the above dates, but we cannot guarantee that aid will be finalized in time to avoid your having to pay out of pocket for tuition, fees, books, and supplies.
Please join the Financial Aid Staff virtually for assistance with completing your 2021-2022 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Sessions are held on the first Monday of every month and will be held via Zoom. Students/parents will have the opportunity to break out into a private session with PCC representatives to complete the application. Registration is strongly encouraged prior to your desired session. You are not required to attend the full 2 hours. You may “enter” the session any time between 5pm-6:30pm. Download the flyer.
