A Guide to Applying for Financial Aid at Montgomery Community College

    1. Apply early!
    2. Make sure you have completed the MCC online Application for Admission. (A new application is needed if you have not attended MCC within the previous year.)
    3. Request official transcripts from all other educational institutions you have attended to be sent to the Admissions Office at MCC, including high school or equivalent and all colleges. (If you receive transcripts, do not open sealed transcript envelopes or they will no longer be considered "official".)
    4. Apply for a Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID (see below).
    5. Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov as soon after January 1 as possible for maximum consideration of all available student aid programs. We recommend that you submit your FAFSA by March 15.
    6. Once you complete the FAFSA you MUST contact MCC to complete your paperwork. This paperwork must be completed before you can receive financial aid.
    7. Activate your Montgomery Community College WebAdvisor account using the Set Up Guide.

Applying for a Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID number

Go to https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm to apply for a Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID. You and your parents (if applicable) must apply for an FSA ID. The FSA ID, which consists of a user-created username and password, replaced the PIN required by FAFSA effective May, 2015. It allows users to electronically access personal information on all FSA web sites as well as electronically sign a FAFSA.

 

 

Before completing your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) . . .

  1. You and your parents (if applicable) should complete and file your federal income taxes before completing your FAFSA. To complete the FAFSA you will need: Student & parent(s) social security number(s), tax returns, social security & VA amounts received, W-2 forms, child support amounts paid or received, net value of assets, driver's license number, and MCC school code - 008087.
  2. After you file the FAFSA electronically you should receive a copy of your Student Aid Report (SAR). The SAR summarizes the information you submit on the FAFSA. The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) will be based on the financial information you provide on the FAFSA, and MCC will use it to award your financial aid. Review the SAR carefully for errors. If necessary, make corrections at www.fafsa.gov.
  3. If your financial aid application is selected for verification, MCC will require you to submit additional documentation. The federal government selects random FAFSAs for verification. Every student that applies at MCC will receive information by e-mail to complete. Return any information to MCC immediately after receipt. Financial aid files are not complete until all paperwork has been processed by MCC and an MCC Award Letter has been received by the student. All financial aid correspondence will be made via e-mail. To request a paper/mail version, please contact the Financial Aid Office.

  • Federal Work Study Program
    1. The student applies for the Federal Work-Study Program by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Financial Aid Office will determine eligibility for Federal Work-Study funds.
    2. The student completes an application for work-study, which will outline the student’s skills, experience and interests. The student’s job preference, as well as the College needs is given consideration in job placement. Whenever possible, placement may be made in an area related to the student’s course of study or career goals.
    3. The Financial Aid Office will review the student applications and place students in an appropriate job setting when positions and funds are available. Returning students may resume their job from the prior school year provided they have been requested back by their supervisor, and have completed all necessary yearly paperwork with the financial aid office.
    4. A Work-Study Contract is prepared and all payroll information is given to the student. A student cannot begin work until a work contract is signed and payroll information is processed. Required forms include a W-4 (Tax Withholding Form), NC-4 State Form and an I-9 (Employment Verification Form). Proper identification is necessary to complete this process. A valid driver’s license, a U.S. social security card or an original or certified copy of a birth certificate will be needed to prove eligibility to work. Also, a valid U.S. Passport may be used in the place of the previous mentioned documents.
    5. The supervisor and student together complete a class/work schedule form to be on file with the supervisor and the Financial Aid Office. A student contract is then completed and is kept on file in the Financial Aid Office.
