The Financial Aid Office is dedicated to helping you navigate the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process, as well as plan for your future. Most of students receive some form of financial aid, ranging from various scholarship opportunities, federal work study, to need-based grants and loans.

100% of admitted students receive financial aid. Full tuition scholarships are available.

The Financial Aid Office will provide you with the information you need to make a sound financial decision while simultaneously supporting your investment in yourself and your work. Each student is sent an individualized aid offer with a break-down of costs, aid offered, and next steps in order to help navigate the financial aid process and plan for their time at PNCA.
