Tips for Students


Apply On-line! Statistics show that students who apply on line make fewer errors and get faster results.


  • Be sure to add MSJC (Title IV Code 001246) in Step 6 of the FAFSA or Renewal FAFSA.
  • Make sure you include your social security number on your MSJC admissions application.
  • Do not wait to enroll before completing the FAFSA.  Apply as early as possible.  The quality of your award will depend in part on the timing of your application.  The deadline for Cal Grant B Competitive Grant for current enrolled community college students is March 2, and September 2 of each year.
  • You must apply each year.  Your financial aid will not be automatically renewed from year to year, and it will not transfer automatically from your previous school.
  • Students with special circumstances may need to see a financial aid representative at MSJC before filing the FAFSA.  Contact the Office of Financial Aid for more information.
