FAFSA / Financial Aid
FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
To receive financial aid students must be officially admitted to OCCC. It is important to submit the FAFSA as early as possible, for the year they would like to attend. The date that students apply and the date that all required forms are submitted can affect the amount of the financial aid award. After all requirements are met, it may take eight to twelve weeks to receive an award letter. The school code students include on their FAFSA if they would like to attend OCCC is 003213.
Go to www.fafsa.ed.gov to complete and submit the FAFSA.

College can be expensive, but there are funds available to help with college costs including tuition, books, and living expenses. There are many steps in the financial aid process and it can take several months to receive financial aid. The first steps are:
- Fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Assistance (FAF- SA). The application can be accessed as fafsa.ed.gov. The school code students who want to go to OCCC should use is 003213, Port- land Community College.
- Get admitted to OCCC if you are new or if you haven’t take a course at OCCC in the last year. Apply for admission at oregoncoastcc.org/getting-started/.
- Visit the financial aid website at oregoncoastcc.org/getting- started. The financial aid tab will walk you through the process on filling out the financial aid application, and end with how to manage your financial aid over the course of your college career.
We strongly recommend you begin the financial aid process as soon as possible and regularly check your MyPCC email for updates after you file your FAFSA and Paying for College tab in my account.
