Tuition Payments and Financial Aid

Financial Aid

If you have not already been awarded a financial aid package, please contact the Financial Aid office to begin the process. You will need to submit the  Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible. Our federal code for the FAFSA is 041539. You will not be placed in college housing until your FAFSA and all other necessary information for financial aid has been submitted to Providence.

If you have received an official financial aid award, please complete the steps below:

  • Return requested forms that were mailed to you with your financial aid package
  • Apply for the Direct Parent PLUS Loan and/or any other alternative loans if needed
  • Complete the VFAO – Virtual Financial Aid Office application if you want to receive federal grants and loans. See Federal Financial Aid section on this website for more information.

Student Employment

At Providence Christian College student employment serves to assist in the educational program of the college by providing financial resources for the students to help pay for college and by training students to be effective and responsible Christian employees.

  • Student Employment positions are for the entire academic year. At the end of the spring semester, job information for the fall of the next school year will be posted. New students will receive information during the summer regarding available positions.
  • Students need to fill out an employment application online. Department supervisors will review applications, interview and hire qualified candidates in the first two weeks of school.
  • Student employees can earn as much as $2300 per school year.
  • A student employee’s wages may be directly applied to the student’s account balance. When the student’s account balance and the current academic year are paid in full, the student can request the full wages (or any percentage) be paid to him or her.


Student employment during college helps prepare students for full-time employment following graduation; therefore, we expect students to act professionally and responsibly in regards to their student employment assignments.

“Liberal arts is a conversation through which we obtain wisdom. True wisdom, then, founded in the fear and love of the Lord, engenders a desire for a deeper knowledge and love of one another, teaches us and aids us in forgiving and reconciling with one another and encourages us to explore together the limitless implications of our redeemed existence on this earth.”
Danielle D.
