The fall term Certification of Enrollment for Payment rosters for the 2018-19 Grant Programs for Dependents of Police, Fire or Correctional Officers (PFC) were emailed to financial aid directors on October 24, 2018. Roster should be returned as soon as possible, but no later than November 30, 2018.


The 2018-19 Grant Program for Dependents of Police, Fire, or Correctional Officers Application is available to print. In order to receive full-year consideration an application must be received on or before October 1 of the academic year for which grant assistance is requested. For spring-term and summer-term consideration, the deadline date is March 1. For summer-term consideration only, applications must be received on or before June 15. Applications received by ISAC after these deadline dates will be processed only for subsequent terms, with June 15 as the final date of acceptance for the summer term.

Effective with the 2018-19 academic year, children of disabled police, fire or correctional officers need not have been born, legally adopted or in the legal custody of the officer before the disability occurred in order to receive a grant. The PFC Eligibility page, within this section, has been updated with 7/1/2018 rule changes.
