Currently, Porterville College’s Office of Financial Aid has moved our operations online due to Coronavirus/COVID-19. Our remote work will occur over an indefinite period of time. We are working closely with the State and public health agencies to determine when on-campus operations will resume. Our ultimate goal is to protect the health and safety of students, employees, and our community.
You may check your Financial Aid status by logging into your insidePC account and clicking on the Financial Aid tab. The information is up to date and available 24/7. Please note, all documents for the 2021 award year are pending as we are moving to an online platform, CampusLogic to better serve students, employees, and remote work. We do not expect to have CampusLogic in full operation until the later part of June. Expect to begin submitting documents via CampusLogic in the early part of July. We appreciate your patience as we work through the implementation phase.
The purpose of this Financial Aid site is to supply you with detailed information about financial aid at PC. If you still have questions, be sure to ask members of the financial aid staff. We believe that no student should be denied access to the educational experience because of a lack of funds. We must work under federal and state regulations designed to supply funds to those who need them the most. To follow the regulations, there is a series of questions that students must answer. Please be patient with the application process.
The Financial Aid process starts with the completion of the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The information that you provide assists us in determining what you and/or your family should pay toward your educational expenses. Students must apply early to receive funds for the first day of classes. Feel free to come by the office if you have any questions regarding your application or financial aid. May you have a prosperous academic year!

» Notice of Availability of Institutional and Financial Aid Information
Student Consumer Information regulations, including the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA) as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 (HEOA), require universities to provide access to certain information to enable students to make informed decisions as conscientious consumers. You can obtain the information on our website.
The College will determine the amount of federal financial aid a student has earned in accordance with federal law. Federal financial aid (“Title IV funds”) is awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded.
When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of Title IV funds that the student originally received. Recipients of federal programs are subject to the Return of Title IV funds requirements. Students who receive federal financial aid and do not attend any classes will be required to repay all of the funds they have received to the college. Students who withdraw from all classes prior to completing more than 60% of the semester will have their financial aid eligibility recalculated based on the percentage of the semester completed and will be required to repay any unearned financial aid they have received. Failure to repay unearned funds could result in a hold on students account and loss of federal aid eligibility nationwide.
The Financial Aid Offices will run a report (RWRTIL4) every weekly to identify students who were paid Title IV funds and have completely withdrawn from school prior to the 60% enrollment period. This will ensure the college is in compliance of notifying the student within 30 days of official withdrawal. Official withdrawal is the date the student officially withdraws from class OR the last day of participation the instructor submits when dropping or assigning an F grade.
