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.
Paul D. Camp Community College (PDCCC) offers a variety of financial opportunities for students who need financial assistance. Students must first file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), in order to be considered for financial assistance. See How To Apply.
To determine if a student qualifies for aid, students must meet all eligibility requirements. Beginning with the Fall 2015, PDCCC will offer Federal Direct Student Loans.
Students who meet the priority FAFSA deadline (listed below) for their first semester each academic year may qualify for state grants in addition to Pell Grant and loans. Priority filing deadlines are:
- Fall Aid: June 1
- Spring Aid: October 15
- Summer Aid (*see note below): April 15
After a student has met all the eligibility requirements, the Financial Aid Office tries to award federal and state grant aid that does not need to be repaid, as long as the student is successful.
Financial Aid works on a “paycheck theory” that the student earns the aid by attending from beginning to end, and receiving passing grades. Students must successfully complete the semester to avoid owing aid back and/or losing eligibility for continuing aid. Please see the Satisfactory Academic Progress and Treatment of Title IV Aid When a Student Withdraws policies in the College Catalog.
*Students should check the SIS for any Pell Summer Trailing awards on April 1, 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 2015 State Grant Application by the deadline listed above, for full consideration.
