Paying for College

Updated: 07/21/2015

Part of being a student is researching options for financing your college courses prior to registering for classes for the semester.

Planning includes researching, learning, and discussing with experts to understand college resources and opportunities available to aid you in reaching your educational goals.

There are a variety of resources that can help you pay for college. Many students receive some type of financial aid (more than one in every three) and also typically use a blend of the resources listed below to help fund their education. Everyone should apply for one or more types of financial aid as there may be funds that are just right for you. Maricopa Community Colleges’ financial services staff are there to help you sort through all of the information to make financially responsible decisions!
