In order to understand how scholarships and financial aid work together, you must first understand a few core concepts about the financial aid system.
To apply for financial aid and 需要-based scholarships, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA will determine your Estimated Family Contribution (EFC), which is the amount that you (and your family) are projected to be able to contribute towards your educational expenses for the year.
Your Cost of Attendance (COA) is what PCC expects it should cost for tuition, 费用, 书, travel and miscellaneous costs for the nine-month academic year (August through May).
Your EFC is subtracted from the COA and the difference is considered your financial 需要. Need-based scholarships, grants and loans can never exceed your financial 需要. The total of all of your aid may never exceed the total COA. If your aid exceeds this 需要 or the COA, awards must be adjusted accordingly. Any scholarship you receive will be used to meet your COA for the year.
Institutional scholarships are awarded during the summer; however, aid is limited and may not be available. If an independent organization wishes to grant you a scholarship for use during a summer session, notify the PCC Cashier’s Office at 719-549-3212 or email@example.com.
