Prince George’s Community College

Students facing financial hardships because of the government shutdown may be eligible for financial assistance.  Students who are Prince George’s County residents and in good academic standing can contact the Special Scholarships Hotline at 301-546-0154 to learn more. 

Partnerships with the County and organizations like United Way of the National Capital Area, which helps fund the Financial Empowerment Center located on the campus, enable the college to aid the community.  Some services offered by the Financial Empowerment Center include financial coaching, savings, debt and credit repair, and tax preparation for those making $55,000 or less.

The college also hosts organizations, such as PGCC Cares, which provides clothing and a food pantry to students in need.
