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. The process is not difficult if you read the instructions and ask questions. 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!
US BANK now handles all of the Financial Aid disbursements for the colleges in the Kern Community College District, including Porterville College.
Students who receive financial aid from Porterville College must inform US Bank of their Financial Aid Disbursement Preference.
