Financial aid not affected by shutdown
Pima Community College wants students and parents to know that Federal Student Aid is unaffected by the current partial government shutdown.
Federal Student Aid offices are open and operational. If you are using any type of federal aid for your education, including Pell grants, FSEOG grants, work-study and loans, your aid will be disbursed as planned and any forms will be processed according to regular Department standard and timelines.
The only exception, according to the Department of Education, could involve information or actions required by other agencies. However, as with past government shutdowns, the Federal Student Aid Office is making every effort to ensure minimal impact on students, borrowers, schools, lenders and others.
