PPCC Resources

View your student's next steps to enrollment based on their student type. 

Every student should submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) regardless of their financial situation. Completing the FAFSA will aid your student when it is time to complete the PPCC scholarship application and apply for any jobs on campus. Learn more about PPCC Financial Aid. 

 Review the cost of attending PPCC and the multiple options to pay for PPCC tuition and fees.

The PPCC Foundation awards more than $1.2 million in scholarships to PPCC students each year.

FERPA gives students certain rights with respect to their education records. Your student can complete the Student Consent Record Release to authorize PPCC to release information to specific individuals.

Your student should work closely with their academic advisor when registering for classes each semester to make sure they are on track for graduation or transfer to a four-year school.

Students who choose to participate in PPCC's free tutoring services receive better grades on average. They also learn skills and strategies individualized to their learning preferences to help them become better students overall.

If you are a veteran, you may be able to transfer your military education benefits to your student. Learn more about PPCC's Military and Veterans Programs. 

Campus jobs provide flexibility for your student with the benefit of working down the hall from their next class. Learn about Career Services at PPCC.
