100% of our students receive a full range of federal, state, and institutional financial assistance
Institutional financial assistance includes scholarships, non-repayable grants, educational loans, and part-time work-study. To cover any balances remaining after deducting financial aid awards, we offer a convenient payment plan.
The FAFSA, Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is the online Federal application PCA&D and most colleges use to determine financial aid. It’s also required for federal student loans.
Filling out the FAFSA
Students may begin to file the 2023-2024 FAFSA as of October 1, 2022. The 2023-2024 FAFSA uses 2021 Federal Tax Returns. Filing annually is required for financial aid, and filing as early as possible will allow more time to get your aid in place.
Incoming accepted and deposited students will receive their financial aid information beginning in December. PCA&D returning students’ financial aid award notification letters will be distributed starting in May after academic progress is determined.
