Prince George's Community College offers aid to students who show financial need. The financial aid we award comes in different types to fit your achievements and specific situation.

Aid award packages often consist of a mix of the following:


Unlike loans, you do not have to repay grants.


We offer merit-based aid for high scholastic achievement, specific affiliations, or leadership activities.


Gain valuable work experience while putting money toward your college expenses.


You must repay loans after graduation, so it is important to choose the right loan for your situation.

Keep in Mind

Be sure to submit all financial aid applications and supporting documents to the Financial Aid Office as early as possible. This will ensure that the determination and award process goes smoothly.

Missing or incomplete paperwork will delay the determination of your financial aid eligibility. If the determination is delayed, be prepared to pay all tuition and fees yourself, or sign up for the tuition payment plan. These payments may be reimbursed once financial aid is authorized.

How Aid Awards Work

  • According to federal guidelines, your total need-based aid and outside resources cannot exceed your calculated financial need.
  • If your financial aid has been processed, you should see the amount of aid for which you are eligible printed on your bill as Financial Aid Awarded.
  • If you believe you have been awarded financial aid that does not appear on your bill, please contact the Financial Aid Office. We are located in Bladen Hall, Room 121. You may also contact us by email at, or by phone at 301-546-0822.

Important Financial Aid Policies

Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

Federal and state regulations require the Financial Aid Office to monitor the academic progress of potential and current financial aid recipients.

Applicants must comply with the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Policy as a condition of initial or continuing eligibility. A student's academic progress will be reviewed at the end of each semester.

Students who do not meet SAP criteria will not see aid posted on their tuition bills.

Find more information about the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy, the Financial Aid Appeal Form, and the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy Checklist.

If you have any questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office.
