Applying for Financial Aid
3 STEPS TO FINANCIAL AID
2. EDUCATIONAL GOAL
3. DOCUMENTS REQUESTED
Apply electronically at fafsa.ed.gov
. (Before you submit a FAFSA, you should apply for a pin number.)
Make sure to add SMC's Federal ID#:001286.
Note: Both applicants and parents of dependent students need to have a pin number.
2. Make sure that you have declared an appropriate educational goal, which you can do online at www.smc.edu - go to Corsair Connect to update.
Note: Only students working toward an AA degree, a vocational certificate, or on the transfer requirements to a
4-year school are eligible to receive Federal Aid at SMC.
Note: If SMC Admissions and Records has already received your academic transcripts you may skip this step.
3. You will receive a document request form, which will indicate what additional documents you need to submit
to the Financial Aid Office.
Note: Please be sure your address is current in the Student Self-Service System at SMC.
Students can only receive federal financial aid (grants and loans) from one college at a time.
