Step 2: Apply for Financial Aid
Financial aid is any source of funds that are available to help you pay for college. We recommend that you submit a financial aid application to see what you may qualify for!
If you are a US Citizen or Permanent Resident, complete the FAFSA application.
If you are NOT a US Citizen or permanent resident but meet AB 540 criteria, you may be eligible for the California Dream Act.
- The PCC School Code is 1261.
- Remember that you will need to apply for financial aid every academic year.
