Although PaSSS program participants receive the PaSSS scholarship, the scholarship will not completely cover the cost of participation. Students should expect an out-of-pocket cost that will vary based on individual factors. In order to assist in covering the out-of-pocket expense, students are encouraged request financial aid.
Students seeking financial aid for PaSSS MUST complete the previous year’s FAFSA at fafsa.gov before the federal deadline of June 30.
Students who apply for financial aid may be eligible for the following,
- Federal Pell Grant
- Federal Direct Stafford Loans (subsidized and/or unsubsidized)
Additional supplemental aid may be available (maximum limits will vary based on individual circumstances) through the Federal Parent PLUS Loan or private alternative loans. Please choose carefully, as terms and conditions vary widely.
