The first step in paying for school.
For this step, you will need:
- Federal School Code for MCC
- FSA PIN
- Social Security Number
- Driver License Number
- Alien Registration Number
- Last Year’s Income Tax Return or W-2s
- Records of Untaxed Income
(e.g., social security benefits)
Next, fill out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA. If you’re interested in paying for college with the help of federal financial aid, you’ll need to submit a FAFSA every year. Processing your application can take up to a month, so we recommend you get it out of the way right now, before moving on to the next step.
If classes start before your FAFSA goes through, you will be responsible for paying out-of-pocket to keep your place in the classroom until you are awarded aid. It is best to do the FAFSA as early as possible; a year in advance is not too early.
To get started on your application, click the button below. It leads directly to the FAFSA home page, pictured here.
When you’re finished applying, return to this page and proceed to the next step.
