A big challenge facing potential college students and their families is how to help supplement higher education costs. Student Financial Services at Penn Highlands is committed to guiding you through the process of understanding how to pay for your education.

We encourage all of our students to apply for financial aid. The first step in applying for aid, including both grants or student loans, is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Our Federal School Code is 031804. Students must complete the FAFSA each year they wish to apply for monetary aid.
