Required Applicati​on

Be sure to file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online with the U.S. Department of Education ​in enough time for Providence College to receive it prior to registration in the semester(s) you plan on attending.

Please keep in mind that in order to apply for financial aid students must be enrolled in a qualifying degree/certification program.  In addition, most sources of funding require students to be at least half-time (i.e. 6 credits) or better.

Applying for Financial Aid

Our adult students are sometimes surprised to find out that they qualify for financial aid.  Check out A Financial Aid Guide for School of Continuing Education Students and Important SCE Financial Aid Facts to better help you navigate financial matters here at the College.
