Types of Aid
Financial Aid can be a confusing process, especially if you're a new student. Help and guidance are always available at Palm Beach State College's Office of Financial Aid.
Financial aid comes in a variety of forms:
Grants: Grants are often based on financial need and do not need to be repaid. There are Federal, State and Institutional grants available to students.
Scholarships: Scholarships generally do not have to be repaid. They are funds awarded to students based on academic or other achievements.
Loans: A loan is money you borrow and must pay back with interest. Remember to only borrow what you need.
Work-Study & Work Experience Programs: The Federal Work-Study Program is an opportunity to earn a portion of your college expenses through on-campus part-time employment. The Florida Work Experience Program (FWEP) is a need-based program providing eligible Florida students work experiences to complement and reinforce educational and career goals
