Tuition & Financial Aid: My experience with the financial aid office is normal. I did meet a setback recently. With the tuition, it is a bit hard to pay it off considering that my father is the only one providing for the family. It is understandable that the school rejected my claim for financial aid considering my father's income from last year. Yet, the office did not really help with finding any other option to help pay off my tuition.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is good. But financial aid can sometimes be confusing and difficult to deal with. They send out their financial aid in waves, so sometimes you will have no money and aid for the beginning few weeks of school for your books and materials if you're caught in the later waves.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Pasadena City College's tuition in my opinion was very straight forward. I believe that from the schooling and knowledge I received while attending PCC was worth the amount of money paid per each semester.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition was not fulling explained or clear cut.

College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I actually have never applied for financial aid, but I know for the people around me that do have financial aid are very content with the process. The only fees that I pay for is the amount necessary per unit which my family and I don't mind.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The tuition of Pasadena City College is reasonable and affordable. However, because Pasadena is a community college and most students are from Pasadena, international and out-of-state students’ tuition is expensive. On the other hand, Pasadena offers a variety of options for scholarships and financial aid. Students can get financial aid information at the Financial Aid Office or on the Pasadena City College website.

It is always recommended that students apply for financial aid ahead of time. Besides the application for financial aid on the FAFSA website, Pasadena also requests the completion of several documents before a student can be approved. The first time around, the experience might be intimidating, so an enrollment counselor and financial aid official are available to assist students and take them through the process step by step.
