The Emergency Aid program is a collaborative campus effort to help PCC students if a financial crisis crops up which threatens your ability to stay in college.  

What is Emergency Aid?

Emergency Aid is meant to help out in times of unforeseen financial emergencies, which can happen at any time. This can be to cover certain eligible expenses, such as utilities, rent, medical and dental costs, or automobile expenses, as well as the money for books- or tuition-related expenses. But if you find yourself in financial hardship you couldn't have foreseen, and it means you may seriously need to drop out of college in order to take care of it, then Emergency Aid might be able to help.


To be eligible to apply, you must be facing a verifiable, unforeseen financial emergency
