  • Log in to MyPCC and go to the Paying for College Tab.
  • Review the financial award information in the dashboard. It's a good idea to click on options available to you and consider your long term financial needs.
  • After you’ve reviewed this information, click Accept or decline your award.

Step two

Step three

  • If you are a new PCC financial aid student, you will need to review the Terms and Conditions tab.
  • If you want to use your financial aid to pay for books and materials from the PCC bookstore, check the Authorization to Deduct Charges box at the bottom.
  • Click the Accept button at the bottom of the page. Once you accept the terms and conditions the Accept Award Offer tab will turn gold.
  • If you have received financial aid through PCC in a previous year, you will not have to agree to the terms and condition. However, we strongly recommend you review this information every year you borrow.

Step four

  • Click on the last tab, Accept Award Offer. Review your award package.
  • Grant funds don’t have to be repaid, they are automatically accepted.
  • You can accept all, part or none of the loans offered to you. Carefully consider how much money you need to borrow in student loans.
  • If possible, try to avoid Unsubsidized Loans.
  • Do not leave any part of your award Undecided. If you do, we cannot release your award package. So, make sure each part of your award package is either accepted or declined.
