Pitt-Johnstown's Financial Aid Office helps students and families meet educational costs. Working together, the office assists in making a Pitt-Johnstown education a reality.

The office processed about $39 million in scholarships, grants, and loans in 2018-19. This has helped to provide assistance to more than 89% of our students.

The Financial Aid Office administers federal and state aid programs, such as grants, scholarships, student loans, and Federal Work-Study employment. 

How Financial Aid works:

Apply for admission (new applicants only) »

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  The FAFSA is used to determine financial aid eligibility. Application deadline is April 1 each year. Using the IRS Data Retrieval Process can significantly reduce the time it takes to complete the FAFSA process.

  • School Code for filing the FAFSA: 008815
  • Priority filing deadline for 2020-2021: April 1, 2020
  • Find Scholarships – Students are automatically verified for academic and merit-based scholarships, but finding outside scholarships will help to pay less money out-of-pocket or through loans.
Use the quick-and-easy scholarship finder to learn about financial aid opportunities specific to you!

Financial Aid Offer Letter

After the FAFSA has been completed, a Financial Aid Offer letter will be emailed to the student. This determines your eligibility regarding:
