What is FLAIR?
FLAIR stands for Financial Literacy and Access to Improved Resources. The FLAIR program, sponsored by a Title III Strengthening Institutional Programs (SIP) grant, was created to improve student access to college-related finances and information.
Here are some of the improvements and features that the FLAIR program has brought to PCC:
- Payment Plans
- To provide greater flexibility for students, enhanced payment plan options are now available from the MyPCC Paying for College tab. Payment plans allow students to spread the cost of their education into affordable payments.
- New Payment Requirements
- Students are now required to complete college-approved financial arrangements before the start of the term. This guarantees that students with financial arrangements will maintain their course registrations and helps move other students from waitlists.
- Financial Aid Dashboard
- Financial aid students can now monitor their progress, address issues, and check their status on the MyPCC Paying for College tab.
- My Refunds
- Financial aid refunds are now issued electronically, which greatly reduces the turn-around time for receiving financial aid refunds.
- Student's Guide to Money
- This guide helps students improve their financial literacy, so they can make smart decisions with their income, debt, and investments.
- Managing Your Financial Aid
- This educational module prepares students to responsibly take on student debt, including options to borrowing, tools to manage existing debt, and strategies for repayment. This knowledge helps students graduate with a manageable amount of debt, and prepares them for a stable financial future.
- FLAIR is working with the PCC Foundation to improve the scholarship awarding process, including faster application processing and providing more scholarship opportunities for students.
