Pearl River Community College students may be eligible for financial aid.


The Pearl River Community College Office of Financial Aid will be available to help all students find sources to help finance their education.

Financial assistance is contingent upon admission to Pearl River Community College as a regular student (all admission requirements have been met). For students eligible for federal Pell grants, the amount received will be determined based on enrolled credit hours (full-time is 12 credit hours for federal aid purposes). Federal student loans require at least half-time enrollment (6 credit hours). Institutional scholarships require full-time enrollment of at least 15 credit hours.

Rules and regulations regarding financial aid programs, eligibility, and satisfactory academic progress can be found on the PRCC website at
