Payment Plan Options
SCE students are sometimes surprised to find out that they qualify for financial aid. Be sure to file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online in enough time for Providence College to receive it prior to registration in the semester(s) you plan on attending. In order to qualify for aid, you must be enrolled in a qualifying degree or certificate program and taking at least six credits a semester. To learn more, visit PC’s Financial Aid site.
Don’t miss out on scholarships to help you pay for school, offered through SCE and outside organizations. Some scholarships are set aside especially for transfer students, as well as for veterans.
The federal government provides a number of tax incentives that can help defray the cost of higher education, including Tax Credits, which directly reduce the amount of tax you are liable for, and Tax Deductions, which reduce the amount of income on which you pay taxes. The National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators provides a guide to help you understand your options. Check with your financial adviser.
Many companies and organizations offer tuition assistance/reimbursement. Your employer may provide up to $5,250 in employer education assistance benefits for undergraduate or graduate tax-free each year, per section 127 of the Internal Revenue Code. Check with your company's Human Resources office for more information.
