The Office of Financial Aid is dedicated to helping students and families reach educational and career goals through the various financial aid programs available at Pearl River Community College.  Financial aid helps students and their families pay for college and is available through a variety of federal, state and institutional programs.  Students may receive assistance through scholarships, grants, loans, and/or part-time employment.
