College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: First things first, I'm thankful my classes are paid for. But I don't receive any aid to help me pay for my textbook fees. I thought being a full time student would allow me to receive financial aid to pay for books. But i never received any money to pay for books. Therefore I have not rating to give.

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.
