filing tipsFor federal aid, submit your application as early as possible. Peru must receive your correct, complete information before your last day of enrollment.



The mission of the Peru State College Financial Aid Office is to provide financial services to students and their families. We want to help each member of our student body to achieve their educational aspirations. These services are a cooperative venture between the students, their families, and the Financial Aid Office. We, along with government agencies, funding groups and other school departments, will monitor this relationship to maintain accountability and compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and policies to reasonably assure the fairest, most equitable, and ethical distribution of financial assistance. We have a strong commitment to secure maximum resources while constantly evaluating ourselves to provide the least complicated and most efficient aid delivery system possible to support Peru State College's enrollment goals.
