Budget and save your money!
Many students who participate in these programs are not rich, they plan for it. They take on extra jobs and save their money for 6 months or longer. This is truly an investment in your future!
Financial aid issued through the PCC Office of Financial Aid may be applied toward any study abroad program officially sponsored by the PCC Office of International Education. Both direct costs (tuition and fees) and indirect costs (books, departure taxes, transportation and meals) are included in the student’s financial aid budget. If you currently do not receive financial aid, you may consider applying to the Financial Aid Office for financial assistance, as the expenses to study abroad are significantly higher than studying at PCC.
Additional aid options can be found in the Funding section of this Study Abroad website.
The KEY is applying early for financial aid. Applications are available in January for the following academic year. The application process takes a minimum of three months. Visit the link below for more information on: The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
PCC’s federal school code for this application is 003213.
Once the student’s expected family contribution is determined from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the Financial Aid Office will begin matching funds with your aid application. Financial aid may support summer/part-time study for students continuing their enrollment from the spring term if the students attended at least half time and who were eligible and/or received financial aid. Most types of federal, state and institutional aid require that students be enrolled in a minimum of twelve credit hours in order to receive financial assistance during the Fall, Winter and Spring terms. To enable you to receive financial aid funds once you leave the country, we strongly recommend you obtain a power of attorney before leaving on your program.
