Financial Aid Forms

The Office of Financial Aid is dedicated to helping students and families reach educational and career goals through the various financial aid programs available at Pearl River Community College.  Financial aid helps students and their families pay for college and is available through a variety of federal, state and institutional programs.  Students may receive assistance through scholarships, grants, loans, and/or part-time employment.  

IMPORTANT DEADLINES:  All students who want to apply for financial aid for the summer 2019 semester MUST complete the 2018-2019 FAFSA by June 30, 2019.  Students who want loans for the summer semester MUST accept loans and complete Entrance Counseling & the Master Promissory Note BEFORE the last day of the summer term.

Attending PRCC during the Summer 2019 semester?  Please complete the Summer Financial Aid Application in RiverGuide and make sure you have the 2018-2019 FAFSA completed. 

PLEASE NOTE:  You MUST be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours to use the Year-Round Pell grant in the summer.  We will review your eligibility AFTER you have registered for summer classes and completed the summer application.


Financial aid staff is available to answer questions about the application process and understanding the policies.  Although the main financial aid office is located at the Poplarville campus, staff at the Forrest County and Hancock Centers can answer general questions for students.   You may call or visit the main campus at:
