How To Apply

The (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), or FAFSA, is the first step in the financial aid process. Use it to apply for federal and state student financial aid, such as grants, student loans, and college work-study. Most states and schools use FAFSA information to award their financial aid. Be sure to list MJC's Federal School 001240 in step six of the FAFSA.

*If this is your first time filling out the FAFSA, and you haven't applied for a Personal Identification Number (PIN), you should do so now. Your PIN is what allows you to complete the FAFSA; you use your PIN to electronically sign your application. You'll also need your PIN to make online corrections to your FAFSA, including changing your name and address, or adding/changing the name of a school to receive your application data.

*If you are applying for a Cal Grant, you may also need to complete and file a GPA Verification Form by the March 2nd deadline (or September 2nd for competitive Cal Grants). Contact the Financial Aid Office for assistance.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You must apply for or renew your financial aid each school year. Financial aid is not continued automatically from one year to the next, nor is it automatically transferable from one college to another. If you plan to transfer to MJC from another school, check with our Financial Aid Office for information about application requirements.
