Students can apply for financial aid online using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Applicants are considered for grants, federal work-study and loans by submitting just one application each year. Each academic year, continuing students must reapply by completing a FAFSA, Renewal FAFSA, or FAFSA on the Web. Scholarships require separate applications. To be considered for financial aid at Phoenix College, submit your application with Phoenix College school code 001078In order to complete this application you (and your parents, if you are a dependent student) will need to apply for a PIN number.

The FASFA 2014-2015 priority deadline is July 1st prior to the start of the Fall semester, November 1st prior to the start of the Spring semester. Applications received by PC after these dates will still be considered for aid, but the student may not be awarded until after the start of the semester. Students who file the FAFSA and submit all requested follow up paperwork after the priority date should be prepared to use their own funds to pay their tuition and fees prior to the payment deadline. Students can set up a payment plan and should be prepared to make all payments while their financial aid application is being processed.
