What is student financial success coaching?

Financial success coaching helps PCC students improve their financial capability and resilience. What is financial capability and how will we help? Financial capability is the attitude, knowledge, skills and commitment needed to make smart financial decisions. Our coaches facilitate a dialogue to help you establish and reach your goals.

Whether you're looking for help with your budget or just have a question about MyPCC, we're here to help.

We can help with:

  • Developing a spending plan
  • Exploring ways to pay for college
  • Financial goal setting for college
  • Identifying financial resources and information
  • Understanding student loans
