Welcome to Financial Aid
Although the cost of being a student at Prairie State College is low compared with many other colleges, any educational expense can strain your budget.
Four basic types of financial aid are available to eligible Prairie State College students: grants, loans, scholarships, and employment. Eligibility requirements vary for each type of assistance, so all students are encouraged to apply for financial aid.
Our financial aid staff is available to help in both the search for financial aid and the application process. Be aware that specific deadlines and refund requirements apply to financial aid students and can affect eligibility.
The 2012 - 2013 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is now available online at fafsa.ed.gov. Priority consideration deadline is April 1, 2012. Visit the Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs FAFSA Information page.
