How do I apply for Financial Aid?
Follow these easy steps:
- Apply for Admission (new
students only) to Mount Marty College. You must be admitted to MMC before you
can receive financial aid.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
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.
- Returning Students. All returning students must complete the Mount Marty College Financial Assistance Application (FAA). This form serves as your application for MMC financial assistance for each academic year.
