Financial Aid Process
A Guide to Receiving and Processing Your Financial Aid
Applying for Financial Aid
You will need to apply for federal financial aid annually. We encourage students to apply as soon as possible. October 1st is the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) “filing begin date” for the next academic year. If you are currently receiving federal financial aid, you will receive a “FAFSA Renewal Reminder” sent by the federal processor to the email address you reported on your FAFSA. This will provide information to you on applying for aid for the next academic year. You can complete your FAFSA by going on-line to www.studentaid.ed.gov. You, along with a parent if you are a dependent, can electronically sign your FAFSA by using your FSA username and password. Mount Marty College’s priority filing date for the FAFSA is March 1. Feel free to contact the Financial Assistance Office with any questions on the federal application process.
Please read and review the Financial Aid Guide for information on receiving and processing your financial aid:
- Make sure to accept or reject each aid item on your award.
- Complete and submit an Employment Application electronically if you have been awarded work-study.
- Contact the Financial Aid Office if you would like to reduce the loan amount on your award (please include your full name in this correspondence). First-time borrowers at Mount Marty College must complete the Federal Direct Loan Master Promissory Note. First-time borrowers also need to complete Entrance Loan Counseling. Parent PLUS (Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students) borrowers will need to complete a Federal Direct Parent PLUS Application and continue by completing a Master Promissory Note.
Students may access the Student Portal and select "Financial Aid" and "Award Letter" to review and accept or reject aid offered.
By accepting your financial aid, you are certifying that you have read and understood the Financial Aid Guide, agree to comply with the terms, conditions, and policies governing any financial aid you receive, and will need to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress in order to remain eligible for financial aid. Your financial award may be adjusted due to a change in enrollment status, residency status, the receipt of additional resources, verification, or oversight.
