PCA SCHOLARSHIP, LOANS & ON-CAMPUS INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
The PCA Financial Assistance Committee awards Degree, Study Abroad at PCA and Certificate students financial assistance on the basis of three criteria: financial need, merit, and assessed commitment to their program of study at Paris College of Art. Awarded need and merit based scholarships defray a portion of tuition. In addition, PCA Degree and Certificate students are eligible for PCA institutional loans, which are made for the period of education at PCA. These loans will not be due for payment until the student has completed their degree or certificate and maintained full-time enrollment. There will be no interest levied on the institutional loans.
Students awarded scholarships and/or institutional loans may also be chosen to participate in the on-campus internship program. Acceptance of an internship is a requirement if a student also wishes to benefit from a need-based scholarship. Interns are assigned positions within the school for which they receive a monthly stipend and a reduction in tuition.
All financial assistance awards are valid for one academic year. To retain their financial assistance package, students must remain in good academic standing (a semester GPA of at least 2.5 with a full-time load of at least 12 credits, including all degree requirements). Students must also reapply in the spring semester and show continued need each year. Awards may be reduced or discontinued if a student fails to complete their awarded internship or if their financial circumstances, academic performance or behavior are deemed to no longer warrant or merit tuition assistance.
Applicants apply online via the apply portal where they can submit the online Financial Assistance Application as well as the mandatory supporting financial documents.
Applicants who would like to be considered for financial assistance should apply for admission by the Priority Deadlines:
February 1, for fall entry
October 1, for spring entry
Please note that only students who have applied for a program of study at Paris College of Art will have access to the online portal where they can then apply for financial assistance.
