Future appointments can be made for additional assistance.
FAFSA Week is from Oct. 4 – 7 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., where the PCC Financial Aid team will help students and prospective students complete the FAFSA application. Support is provided in person and online via Zoom, and those interested can call the Financial Aid Office to set up an appointment at (336) 322-4004 for Person County, (336) 694-8046 for Caswell County, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
