Undergraduate Financial Aid

How to Apply for Financial Aid

Applying for financial aid is a key part of the college application process. Make sure you know what to submit and when. Please follow below steps to apply:

Step 1. Get admitted to MCU. Office of Financial Aid will award students who are admitted to the university. However, you can start your financial aid application early.

Step 2. Submit your FAFSA. Complete the Free Application for Federal student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.gov. MCU’s school code is 010474.

For California Residents Only: Submit Cal Grant GPA Verification by March 2.

All California residents can apply for a Cal Grant. You must file the FAFSA and submit the GPA Verification form to the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) by March 2 to be considered for a Cal Grant.  Most high schools and community colleges electronically submit the GPA Verification form on behalf of their students. Check with your high school/college counselor for more information.

How to Fill Out the FAFSA

Step 3. Review your Award Letter. Office of Financial Aid will send you an estimated Award Letter once your awards are ready to be reviewed. Please note that your award is NOT FINAL until all the required documents are submitted. You will be notified separately if additional documents need to be submitted.

Step 4. Accept/Decline your Awards.  You must log into My Marymount and accept and/or decline your aid. Also check “My Documents” to make sure that you do not have any incomplete documents.

Step 5. Complete Loan Requirements. If you decided to borrow federal student loans, you must complete the following items:
