Financial Aid


Completion of a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form is required for adult students seeking financial assistance interested in attending PCTC. This identifies eligible students for financial assistance that may reduce their tuition costs. No student is required to accept financial assistance made available from FAFSA submission. Any student may submit a FAFSA form, regardless of their tuition payment status.

Financial Assistance is offered to a qualifying adult student through various funding sources. To determine eligibility for financial assistance, a student must complete a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) application at www.studentaid.gov and use 014800 for Putnam Career & Technical Center’s federal school code.
