Financial Aid

WELCOME!  Thank you for choosing Paul D. Camp. We are here to help you. Please review the information below and in the menus to the right.

GET STARTED NOW:  File your FAFSA online. The Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step for most financial aid, including federal and state grants, federal loans, and PDCCC scholarships.See “How To Apply“, on the right side of the page.  Our school code is 009159.

ELIGIBILITY: To determine if a student qualifies for aid, students must file the FAFSA and meet all eligibility requirements; see “Eligibility for Financial Aid”, at right.   PDCCC now offers Federal Direct Student Loans.  Loans must be repaid, with interest.  To apply, see “Student Loan Program”, at right.  Please view our updated Financial Aid Handbook for an overview of the Financial Aid Process.

ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRED: 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.

REFUNDS:  Expecting a refund for a financial award, scholarship, or dropped course? Avoid waiting in lines at school offices and take control of the refund process online. Paul D. Camp Community College offers two electronic refund choices through our partners, Tuition Management Services (TMS).  Manage your account at

WANT MORE FREE MONEY?  Apply early:  Grants are free money that does not have to be repaid, as long as a student attends from beginning to end, and earns passing grades. 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/or loans.  Priority filing deadlines are:

  • Fall Aid: June 1
  • Spring Aid: October 15
  • Summer Aid (*see note below): April 15

*Summer 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 State Grant Application by the deadline listed above, for full consideration.
