Tuition & Financial Aid: I had a few troubles with the financial aid office, but those were all small ones and they were quickly fixed. Financial aid is usually based on grades.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I has a few issues with my financial aid. It was a nightmare, I was fortunate enough however to get it resolved. When asking for help in the financial office, it's important that you try to go really early because they are always so busy.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I only receive the Board of Governors California Fee Waiver (BOGC), but it alleviates any tuition expense. The books are still expensive, but there are a lot of used books being sold and most of the required materials for the courses are available in the library. If only the staff of the financial aid office aren't as rude I would've given a 5 star rating.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I haven't had any problem with finances at this school. The financial aid office is very patient and are there to help you in all ways for you benefit.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
