A friendly reminder: Thanksgiving Break may be a good time to complete your 2018-2019 FAFSA application.
The FAFSA,  Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is the online Federal application PCA&D and most colleges use to determine financial aid. It's also required for federal student loans.


This is just a friendly reminder to all students returning for the next academic year and new students, that the 2018-2019 FAFSA is now available.  Thanksgiving Break might be a good time for you to get this out of the way.

Pennsylvania College of Art & Design and Warfel Construction have entered into an agreement to repurpose a former tobacco warehouse into housing for PCA&D students. The building, owned by 349 North Market Street LLC, at 349-351 North Market Street, downtown Lancaster is less than three blocks from the college and will be developed as an adaptive reuse project by Warfel into six apartments ready for occupation by “upper-class” art students, those who have completed their first or foundation year, by the fall 2018 semester.
