Financial Aid

The first step for students will be to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The data reported on the FAFSA determines the expected family contribution (EFC). The EFC is then subtracted from the cost of attendance for the academic year. The resulting figure is called demonstrated Financial need.


Student Employment assists in financing educational expenses and provides a valuable service to Prescott College and local community projects. Positions continually become available in College departments, at special events, with orientations, campus tours and admissions work, as well as supporting faculty and academic programs.
