❑ File your FAFSA as early as possible. You can even file your FAFSA before you apply for admission to DMACC. There are two ways that you can complete this; a redesigned
fafsa.gov website and a mobile app called “myStudentAid” from both Apple App Store (iOS) and Google Play (Android). Both of these ways allow you to complete your Federal FAFSA application completely FREE.
You can use the
data retrieval tool to electronically bring in your taxes, eliminating errors on your FAFSA.
❑ DMACC will receive your FAFSA from the federal government within 7-10 days after it is processed. DMACC will then reach out to you via DMACC email, personal e-mail and text if you provided your cell phone number on your Application for Admission. The Financial Aid Office will primarily use your DMACC email address to contact you, so check it often. You will be directed to the
Web Info System (accessible through
myDMACC) to view your additional “requirements”.
Instructions on Viewing Financial Aid Requirements on the Web Info System
- If you are selected for
verification, you may be asked to submit a signed Federal Tax Return.
