3 STEPS TO FINANCIAL AID

1. FAFSA
2. EDUCATIONAL GOAL
3. DOCUMENTS REQUESTED
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
1. 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.
