What are the Federal Financial Aid Application Procedures?

Financial records must be made available for financial aid purposes, including:

  1. 2015 U.S. Income Tax information
  2. W-2 forms and other records of money earned in 2015
  3. 2015 records of nontaxable income such as veterans' noneducational benefits, child support and tax deferred pensions
  4. 2015 business, farms, investments and other asset records (excluding principal residence)

Students will need the above information to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). When completing the application, it is recommended that the income information should not be estimated, however, students should not miss any scholarship deadlines. Verification of the information on the application is likely to be requested at a later date for applications with estimated information. For students classified as dependents, both the student and parent financial records must be made available for financial aid purposes.

Students may complete the 2017-2018 FAFSA or renewal application on the Department of Education's website www.fafsa.gov.

The College's Title IV School Code Number is 010652. Use this code number on the FAFSA application when asked for your school's code.

To apply for financial aid at PHSC, students also must complete the following steps:

Students must submit a new FAFSA each academic year, and are strongly encouraged to apply by the dates listed in the College Catalog and Student Handbook under "When Should a Student Apply?" Financial aid awards are not renewed automatically, students must reapply by submitting a new FAFSA for each academic year
