PCC Scholarships

PCC keeps the cost of college even more affordable and predictable by offering scholarships. Specific scholarship amounts are set as 10% to 20% of current tuition and automatically increase correspondingly. The net value of scholarships over four years varies based on participation in the Fourth Year Tuition-Free program.

Read the details below to see if you qualify, then don’t wait to apply! A limited number are available to qualified students. You must be accepted to PCC to apply for scholarships.

Qualified students may apply for a scholarship for the fall semester before the deadline of June 15 (spring semester by December 1). Please contact the Admissions Office to help guide you through the process.
