Responsibilities After Accepting Your Award

If you have no missing requirements and have accepted financial aid to cover your tuition costs, your enrollment is protected. You do not have to make payment by the payment deadline date as your aid will be applied to your account when the Financial Aid Office runs anticipated aid. 

It is your responsibility to check your Financial Aid missing requirements. A missing requirement can cause aid to not be disbursed to pay your institutional charges and for you to be dropped from your courses. Continue to monitor your E-Central account and PCC Student Email account for important Financial Aid information.

Withdrawal and non-attendance may affect the aid you receive and you may be required to repay part or all aid disbursed. There are many requirements for earning your financial aid. Attendance and grades as well as the total number of hours you completed compared to the hours for which you were paid at the beginning of the semester, may require you to repay part or all of your financial aid.
Before withdrawing from a class, check with the Financial Aid Office.
