Financial Aid

Financial Aid

The Financial Aid program is designed to provide financial assistance to eligible students from federal, state, institutional, and private funding sources. The program also provides information to families about sources of funding, application procedures, and advice on financial and budgeting issues. Financial assistance can help you manage college costs and pay for college tuition, fees, and books.

Financial aid options include:

  • Grants
  • Loans
  • Federal Work-Study (FWS) Programs
  • Scholarships

How to Apply for Financial Aid

You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and submit any requested information to the PC Financial Aid Office by the completion date in order to have your application reviewed before the tuition due date. Financial aid applications received after this date will still be considered for aid, but students will not actually receive their award letter until after the start of the semester. You can find any outstanding items on the Financial Aid "To Do" list on the My.maricopa self service site.

Completion Dates:

  • 2016-2017 FAFSA
    • Fall 2016 - July 1, 2016
    • Spring 2017 - November 1, 2016
    • Summer 2017 - April 1, 2017

Net Price Calculator

The net price calculator is a tool to help students estimate the total cost of attending Phoenix College. Taking into consideration everything from tuition and fees to books and supplies, transportation and dependent expenses, the net price calculator is an easy, quick and convenient way to estimate yearly educational expenses.

The calculator also estimates the total financial aid a student will receive, if eligible, and deducts that amount for the estimated net price.

Note: Actual net price can vary significantly based on student eligibility and does not represent an actual award. Submission of the FAFSA is the only way to obtain a true and accurate determination of eligibility. Estimates apply to full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduate students.
