Helpful ways to pay for college

If you want to attend Montco but feel overwhelmed by the cost of a college education, consider applying for financial 援助.

Too often students assume they are not eligible for financial 援助, so they don't even apply. However, the only way to know if you're eligible for 援助 is to complete the FAFSA (Free Application for 联邦 Student Aid). The FAFSA is free to complete and will inform students of their 援助 eligibility for the upcoming academic year. 

**Important FAFSA Update**

May 2024 Update: Montco has started to receive and process FAFSA forms for 2024-25. 学生 may now make corrections to their 2024-25 FAFSA forms with limited functionality.

Please Note: The ability for institutions to make changes to a student's FAFSA will become available in late June. Montco is holding all FAFSA corrections due to changes in income or unusual circumstances and will 提交 them as soon as the functionality becomes available.

There have been many changes to the FAFSA for 2024-25. Please read the application carefully and double-check your information before hitting 提交.

Types of financial 援助

By filing the FAFSA, you could be eligible for:

  • 联邦 grants — federal financial 援助, such as the 联邦 Pell Grant, that does not have to be 偿还;
  • PA state grants — state financial 援助 that does not have to be 偿还;
  • Scholarships 和奖励 — institutional financial 援助 that does not have to be 偿还;
  • 联邦 工作研究 — part-time employment that helps finance your education;
  • 贷款 — borrowed money that must be rep援助 with interest;
  • Tax credits and deductions.
