Financial Aid

Front Building

Here at Palo Verde College, we want every student to be able to afford their education. That is why we are committed to providing you information about financial aid programs and opportunities.

This website has been developed to enable you, the student, to understand what Financial Aid is and how you may qualify. We hope you will take the time to read it carefully, as we have attempted to simplify a very complex system.

The Financial Aid system was developed so that all students could have access to a college education. It is a cost-sharing concept in which funds for your education are provided by you, your parents, and State/Federal agencies. Financial Aid is intended to meet the gap between your income and the cost of attending college.
