To be considered for financial aid, students must generally meet the following minimum requirements:
Expected Family Contribution (EFC)
MJC Net Price Calculator is designed to allow high school and college students to estimate student financial aid eligibility information. Click here to access the: Net Price Calculator. By completing this worksheet the student will receive information about his/her Expected Family Contribution (EFC), and estimated eligibility for grants at Modesto Junior College.
Most financial aid is awarded based on your financial need, which is also known as
your financial eligibility. Federal Student Aid uses the data on your FAFSA to calculate an Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The
EFC is an indicator of your (and your family's) financial ability to pay for college.
Financial Aid Determination Formula:
|+ Tuition and fees|
|+ Books and supplies|
|+ Room and board|
|+ Personal and travel|
|+ Dependent care|
|- Expected Family Contribution (EFC)|
|- Parents' Contribution|
|- Student's Contribution|

Special Circumstances for Families
The income information provided on the FAFSA is for the previous calendar year. What if a family's income changes because of a loss of employment, an accident, or an illness? There may be a loss of benefits such as child support or social security. There could be a death, a divorce, or a disability that changes the family's ability to pay for college.
A FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) must be on file before a special circumstance is considered. You can print out a Special Circumstance Request form at www.mjc.edu/faforms.
In order to be eligible for financial aid funding, students must be enrolled in an AA/AS degree program, transfer program, or one of the approved certificate programs listed in the MJC Course Catalog. Students enrolled in ONLY Skills Recognition courses would qualify for the Board of Governors fee waiver ONLY, and would not be eligible for any other types of financial aid.
