Financial Information for Today and Tomorrow

Financial Information for Today & Tomorrow (F.I.T.T.)

The Financial Information for Today & Tomorrow (F.I.T.T.) program is designed specifically for PCOM students to provide resources in the areas of debt management and financial literacy. We believe students who take advantage of the F.I.T.T. program will be more likely to borrow less loans today as well as be better equipped to have a positive financial plan for tomorrow. PCOM's Financial Aid Office is committed to helping students develop healthy financial habits during and after school.
