Our Tuition Aid Committee reviews the progress of each student at the end of each semester to determine continued assistance support for the next semester. Recipients of partial tuition awards who have an outstanding tuition balance for a prior semester are ineligible for aid until their outstanding balance is paid in full. Tuition aid recipients are expected to volunteer for PMAC when possible, as scheduled through the office. All Returning Students must reapply for Tuition Aid each August.
