Financial Aid Forms

You may have received a letter from the Financial Aid Office requesting that you submit one or several forms to the Financial Aid Office. Several of the forms below may be submitted electronically. Your name will serve as your electronic signature. Dependent students should follow the instructions on the forms for submitting parental information. When requested your parent or spouse must certify the form.

When you submit an on-line form you have agreed to allow the Financial Aid Department to communicate with you electronically. Providing a DMACC ID or social security number you certify that you are the person identified and have not disclosed your identifiers to anyone else.

To cancel a submitted form, e-mail the Financial Aid Office at finaid@dmacc.edu. Once you start to complete an on-line form, you must finish it. You will not be permitted to save and continue it at a later time.

Returning students may also check on the Student Web Information System to determine which forms are needed to complete their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) processing for the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 award years. Returning students may access the Student Web Information System.

After the Financial Aid Office receives all of the requested financial aid forms your FAFSA information will be reviewed. You will receive an award offer electronically by e-mail if you are a returning student. New DMACC students will receive an award offer via regular mail. New Federal Direct loan borrowers will be asked to complete Loan Entrance Counseling Requirements and loan promissory notes, if they choose to accept Federal Direct Student Loans.

We recommend completing all requested documents as soon as possible, hopefully within seven to 10 days after you receive the request.   If you delay or fail to submit the requested form(s), you will not receive an award offer in a timely manner and you may jeopardize your eligibility for an award.

Please e-mail us at finaid@dmacc.edu if you do not want to or cannot successfully submit the requested forms. Note: Submit additional forms only if you are instructed to do so by letter or when you access the the Student Web Information System with your DMACC PIN.

If you purposely give false information, your case will be referred to the U.S. Department of Education's Inspector General's Office for handling.
