Porterville College is committed to provide students an opportunity to pursue their educational goals. The Financial Aid Office offers assistance to students who need funds to attain that goal.
The purpose of this Financial Aid Web Site is to supply you with detailed information about financial aid at Porterville College. If you still have questions, be sure to ask members of the financial aid staff. We believe that no student should be denied access to the educational experience at Porterville College because of a lack of funds. We must work under federal and state regulations designed to supply funds to those who need them the most. To follow the regulations there is a series of questions that must be asked of you. Please be patient with the application process.
The financial Aid process starts with the completion of the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The information that you provide assists us in determining what you and/or your family should pay toward your educational expenses. Students must apply early to receive funds for the first day of classes. The process is not difficult if you read the instructions and ask questions.
Feel free to come by the office if you have any questions regarding your application or financial aid. May you have a prosperous academic year!
