FAFSA Update: 2024-25 Application Delayed

We understand that the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is a crucial component of your student’s financial aid journey. The Department of Education has made the decision to delay the release of the 2024-25 FAFSA application until December 2023. Please rest assured that this delay is not a decision made by PRCC but a nationwide policy set by the Department of Education.

We want to emphasize that this delay will not put your student at any disadvantage. PRCC remains committed to providing the same level of support and assistance in securing financial aid, scholarships, and grants for our students. We are closely monitoring the situation and will ensure that our students have all the resources they need when the application becomes available.

Taking Action: Create or Recover Your FSA ID

While waiting for the new FAFSA application to open, we encourage both parents and students to take proactive steps. You can create or recover your Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID at STUDENTAID.GOV. This ID is essential for electronically signing and submitting the FAFSA and for accessing other federal financial aid websites. It’s a crucial tool in making the financial aid process smooth and efficient.

Quick Housing Update

For our returning students who have already made PRCC their home away from home, the housing application is now open! For our incoming Wildcats who are joining us for the first time, mark your calendars! The housing application for new students will open on November 1st. Keep your eyes open for the next edition of the Parent Newsletter as we give more detailed information about the application process, due dates, and helpful tips!

Stay Connected with PRCC!

We invite you to return to our website regularly to stay updated on all the latest news, events, and information that are important to both students and parents. We’ll be posting new editions of the Wildcat Parent Newsletter right here, so be sure to check back often.

Additionally, we encourage you to follow us on Facebook, where we’ll be sharing timely updates as they are released. It’s another great way to stay connected and be part of the PRCC community.

Thank you for entrusting us with your student’s education. We’re excited to embark on this journey together, and we look forward to achieving great success as a team! If you have any questions or need assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out to our dedicated staff.
