Although the primary responsibility for financing an education rests with the student and his/her immediate family, it is recognized that many students require additional assistance in order to finance their educational goals. Therefore, the College through the Financial Aid Office, offers financial assistance which may be based on merit, documented financial need, or military veteran status to those students who would otherwise not be able to attend EPCC.
Merit Based Aid: Scholarships which can be institutional or outside;
Need Based Aid: Grants, work study, subsidized student loans;
Veteran Benefits: The Financial Aid Office serves as the liaison between the student and Veterans’ Administration to assist veteran students in applying for and maintaining eligibility for VA benefits.
Awards from financial aid programs funded by the Federal and State governments are administered according to the laws and guidelines governing those programs. Financial Aid Offices are located at all five campuses with staff available to assist with applications and answer questions.
