Financial Aid for Current Students

Paul D. Camp Community College (PDCCC) offers a variety of financial opportunities for students who need financial assistance.

It is the desire of the Financial Aid Office that no qualified student shall be denied the privilege of attending college because of the lack of finances, if funds are available.

To determine if a student qualifies for aid, the Financial Aid Officer looks at need. Need is defined as the difference between the cost of attending the college and the total family contribution (parent contribution and/or student’s contribution), as determined by the FAFSA

The criteria used for selecting student recipients involve both the computed need of the student, the time the application is completed (including all follow-up requests for information and verification), and the student’s academic standing.

Completed applications for fall semester received by June 1, will receive primary consideration for the upcoming year. Those received after June 1, will also receive consideration, but funds may have limited availability.

Completed applications for spring semester received by October 1, will receive primary consideration for the upcoming year. Those received after October 1, will receive consideration only as funds are available.

Completed applications for summer semester received by April 16, will receive primary consideration for the upcoming year. Those received after April 16 will receive consideration only as funds are available.

The FAFSA is the only form required for summer Pell Grant awards.  Students should check the SIS for any Pell Summer Trailing awards and compare the award to actual tuition charges, once enrolled.  Students who are not eligible for Pell Grant and those who have been enrolled 12 or more credits for both Fall and Spring will need to submit a Summer 2013 State Grant Application by the deadline listed above, for full consideration.

After a student has been accepted in an eligible program at PDCCC and has demonstrated need, the college tries to meet that need by offering aid which comes in the form of a “package” consisting of available grants, possibly work study, and/or scholarships.

The Military Selective Service Act of 1983-84 states that any student required to register with the Selective Service who fails to do so is ineligible for Title IV student aid Federal Pell Grant, FSEOG, FWS, Federal Perkins Loan (formerly NDSL), Federal Stafford (formerly GSL), Federal PLUS Loans, and State Incentive Grant Program.
