Financial Aid - How to Apply

Applying for financial aid consideration is relatively easy. Simply complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This is a free, nationwide program run by the federal Department of Education, which then provides information to colleges and universities. The Pierce College Federal School Code (required on your FAFSA) is 005000.

If you are not currently a Pierce College student, you will need to apply for admission.

Once your FAFSA is processed, you will receive an email from Pierce College’s Financial Aid office (all emails are sent to student’s Pierce College email accounts). At that time, you may be asked to submit additional documents.

If you previously attended other colleges or universities, these credits will need to be evaluated by Pierce College. Submit the completed evaluation to Financial Aid.
