Need financial aid? Phoenix College is here to help! Follow these steps to find out if you qualify and how to apply for financial aid.
Find out if you qualify for financial aid.
To qualify for Federal Student Aid, students must meet the criteria set by the U.S. Department of Education.
Create your FSA ID
Your FSA ID is the username and password you create to complete, sign and access your FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Parents of dependent students will need to create their own FSA ID so they can sign the parent portion of the FAFSA.
IMPORTANT: Do not forget your FSA IS or your FSA ID password. We cannot reset or recover them for you.
Ensure you're admitted to PC before beginning this process.
New students must submit a Student Admission Application.
Continuing students should update their address and phone number on my.maricopa.edu
Complete the FAFSA using your FSA ID
Before you start the FAFSA gather the following information:
|if you plan to attend college from:||You will submit this FAFSA||You can submit the FAFSA from:||Using income and tax info from:|
|Fall 2019, Spring 2020, Summer 2020||2019-2020||Oct 1, 2018 – Jun 30, 2020||2017|
|Fall 2020, Spring 2021, Summer 2021||2020-2021||Oct 1, 2019 – Jun 30, 2021||2018|
You may need to submit additional documentation after the submission of your FAFSA. If anything is needed, we will post it on your To Do List. All items listed on your To Do List must be submitted by the complete file date. Applications received after the complete file date will still be considered for aid, but you may not be awarded aid until after the start of the semester.
Students who complete the FAFSA and submit all requested follow-up paperwork after the complete file 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.
