Other Federal and State Financial Aid Programs

Campus-Based Funding

How much aid you receive from campus-based programs depends on your financial need, the amount of other aid you’ll receive and the availability of funds at Pima Medical Institute. Unlike the Pell Grant Program, which provides funds to every eligible student, each school participating in any of the campus-based programs receives a certain amount of funds each year. When that money is disbursed, there are no additional awards for that year.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG)

Undergraduate students with the lowest Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and who will also receive Pell grants for the award year have primary consideration for an FSEOG award. The amount of the grant and the number of students who may receive this grant depends on the availability of funds from the U.S. Department of Education.

Federal Work-Study Program

The Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) provides part time employment to students who need the earnings to defray the cost of their education. Students may work on or off campus for a qualified public, private, or community service organization.

Application for the FWS program may be made through the Financial Aid Office and eligibility is based on financial need and availability of funds. The Institution will attempt to place students in jobs related to their program of study, and work schedules will be arranged according to class schedules. The amount of the award and the number of students who may receive this award depends on the availability of funds from the U.S. Department of Education.

Other Federal and State Funding

Leveraging Educational Assistance Partnership (LEAP)

Maximum award for each academic year will depend on the availability of funds. This is a grant and does not require repayment. Please contact your local Arizona campus finance office to determine eligibility. Funds are limited.

Cal Grant

The Cal Grant is a California-specific financial aid allocation that does not need to be paid back. Cal Grant applicants must apply using the FAFSA or CA Dream Act Application by the deadline and meet all eligibility, financial, and minimum GPA requirements of either program. Please contact your local California campus finance office to get additional information.

Veterans’ Benefits

This institution is approved to offer designated programs for veterans’ training. Applications for veterans’ benefits may be picked up at the Institution or by contacting the Department of Veterans Affairs. Approval of training benefits to be awarded is the responsibility of the Department of Veterans Affairs. All students applying for veteran’s benefits through the Institution must supply verification of high school graduation or GED certificate. All postsecondary education from an accredited institution must be verified with an official college transcript.

Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is landmark legislation designed to strengthen and improve our nation’s public workforce system. It is designed to support Americans, including youth and those with significant barriers to employment, get into high-quality jobs and careers and assist employers in the hiring and retention of skilled workers.

WIOA offers states a range of programs and services that help jobseekers get training, education and support. That way, they will do well in the job market. WIOA also connects employers with the trained workers they need, providing those workers the opportunity to  compete in the worldwide economy.

Pima Medical Institute is a WIOA eligible training provider at the following locations.
