The FAFSA can be filed on the Internet at the following website: http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. To request a paper copy of the FAFSA, call the Federal Processing Center at 1-800-433-3243
You may be eligible for the following grants:
• Pell Grants
• Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (SEOG)
• DMACC Grant

The FAFSA application is also used to determine eligibility for student loans.
Career education students should note a July 1st FAFSA filing deadline for Iowa Vocational Technical Tuition and Kibbie Grant consideration.
Within 3-5 days after submitting your FAFSA electronically, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR), confirming the information you reported on your financial aid application.
❑ Please review the SAR for accuracy and, if changes need to be made, go to the FAFSA website, sign in, choose "make a correction," and submit your corrections.
❑ DMACC will receive your FAFSA within 7-10 days after it is processed. You will be sent an initial information letter and email from DMACC's Financial Aid Office, notifying you of any forms or additional information needed. You can also view any outstanding requirements by logging into the Web Info System. Please fill out all forms completely and return the requested information immediately.
❑ Examples of some forms you may be asked to complete include, but are not limited to: Verification Form, Child Support Paid form, Student or Parent Low Income form. Forms can be completed online at the Financial Aid Forms page.
❑ If you are selected for verification, you may be asked to submit a Federal Tax Return Transcript, if you did not link to the IRS when you completed your FAFSA.
Your financial aid information will be processed after all information that was requested has been submitted.
❑ You will receive a financial aid award email notifying you when you have a financial aid award ready to view on the Web Info System. Please log in to the Web Info System to accept the Financial Aid Terms and Conditions, and accept or decline your financial aid award.
