Financial Assistance: available to eligible students who need additional resources to meet college costs. Patrick Henry Community College strives to assist students in off-setting these costs through grant funds. Grant funds are awarded to students based on financial need.
Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the starting point for applying for these funds. The information you provide on the FAFSA is calculated by the Department of Education to determine your family's financial strength to pay for educational cost (Expected Family Contribution or EFC). The EFC is subtracted from the cost of attendance; the result is your financial need. Step by step instructions to Complete the FAFSA. YouTube also has some videos to help you complete the FAFSA.
