Understanding Financial Aid:

All types of financial aid have eligibility requirements. Eligibility for most federal student aid programs is based on demonstrated financial need rather than on academic achievement. Financial aid from the state of Florida usually requires the recipient be a resident of the state. Some scholarships specify the recipient must enroll in a particular field of study or have a high grade point average. Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid Application (FAFSA) is the first step in the financial aid process.

Title IV Federal Student Aid programs administered by PHSC for the 2018-2019 academic year include: 

  • William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program
  • Federal Pell Grant
  • Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant
  • Federal Work-Study Program

Apply for Financial Aid

Applying for financial aid at PHSC must be completed each year. The Department of Education (DOE) makes the new FAFSA available after October 1. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online.   There is no fee to complete the FAFSA on the DOE web site. Please refer to the "quick links" option at the top of this page for the Spanish language FAFSA link
