Financial Aid Process
The financial aid process begins with filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You can file as early as October 1 for the upcoming year.
Net & Bill Calculators
If your student is thinking about making PBA their home, or is attending college for the first time, use our Net Price Calculator to estimate what it might cost to attend PBA. If your student has received a financial aid offer, use our Bill Calculator to estimate costs for the upcoming year.
Paying the Bill
Your student’s bill is generated each semester. Bills are issued electronically and can be viewed online via their Student Account Center. Monthly payment plans are offered through our partnership with NelNet and may be set up through your student’s Student Account Center. Before classes begin, your student’s bill must be paid in full or be covered by a monthly payment plan or an approved loan.
Your student’s PBA email is the only place that the Financial Aid Office will send important communications regarding their financial aid. Your student also has access to their financial aid information, via myPBA, where they can view awards, check for outstanding documents, complete forms, etc. For any additional questions, please give us a call at (561) 803-2126 Monday through Friday from 8AM-5PM, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond within 24-48 hours.
There are times when your family may experience special circumstances that significantly reduce your family’s income. This could be loss of employment, separation, divorce, etc. and may warrant a special review of your student’s financial aid package. Please visit our Professional Judgments page to learn more about your options.
