Financial Aid Priority Deadlines

In order to provide efficient student service and receive timely payment of tuition, fees, and other charges, Pratt Community College requires students that are planning on financial aid for payment of PCC charges to have a completed FAFSA submitted to the PCC Financial Aid Office prior to August 1 using the official Federal Student Aid website at https://studentaid.gov/h/apply-for-aid/fafsa.

Once the federal financial aid has been offered and accepted it will then be applied to the student’s outstanding bill; any amounts still due must have payment arrangements or paid in full by August 1st. If the student has any funds leftover after all charges have been paid, he/she will be allowed to charge for books up to the amount of the remaining funds.

Students who have not completed their scholarship agreement and other financial aid documents including the FAFSA, letter of intent and award letter by August 1 for the fall semester will be charged a $100 late processing fee.

Students without a completed FAFSA will not be allowed to charge books to their student accounts. Any refunds will be processed prior to the 60th day of classes.

All students must have all Fall Semester financial aid documentation completed by September 15. Failure to complete documentation will result in the administrative withdrawal of that student unless waived by the Vice President for Finance and Operations.
