How do I apply for Financial Aid?


Follow these easy steps:

  1. Apply for Admission (new students only) to Mount Marty College. You must be admitted to MMC before you can receive financial aid.
  2. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or the Renewal FAFSA. The FAFSA can be obtained from your high school guidance counselor, MMC Financial Assistance Office or on the Web. For priority consideration, your FAFSA should be filed with the federal processor by March 1st.
  3. Receive and Review your Student Aid Report (SAR). Shortly after you file your FAFSA, you and MMC will receive a copy of your SAR. This document will provide you and the school with your calculated Expected Family Contribution (EFC). Review your SAR for accuracy. If any corrections need to be made, you can do so on FAFSA on the Web or make the corrections on your SAR and send the form in to the federal processor.
  4. A Financial Aid Award Letter will be sent to you by the Financial Assistance Office. This award letter will be sent to you once it has been determined that you are admitted to MMC and the Financial Assistance Office has received a copy of your SAR. The Award Letter will outline what financial aid you are eligible to receive. You will need to sign and return your Award Letter to the Financial Assistance Office.
  5. Complete a Master Promissory Note for Direct Loans. If you are a new student at MMC or are receiving your first Federal Direct Subsidized Loan or Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan, you must complete a Federal Direct Loan Master Promissory Note. All Federal Perkins Loan recipients must sign a promissory note in the Business Office the first time they receive loan funds.
  6. Complete Entrance Loan Counseling. Before loan funds can be disbursed to first-time loan recipients at MMC, an entrance loan counseling session must be completed. Federal Direct Subsidized Loan or Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan recipients can complete their entrance interview online. Entrance interviews for the Federal Perkins and Federal Nursing Loans will be completed with the Business Office.
