Complete your Financial Aid Application using the following steps:

  1. Create an FSA ID here. The FSA ID serves as your electronic signature. You will need to remember your FSA ID for future use.
  1. Complete the FAFSA here.
    White Mountains Community College school code is 005291
  1. Your Student Aid Report (SAR), which is a record of the information you submitted on the FAFSA, should arrive via email approximately one week after the date your FAFSA was filed online. If you do not receive your SAR, call 1-800-433-3243. This report is for your records only, as WMCC will receive a copy electronically.
    • Review your SAR for any incorrect information. Corrections can be made by logging into your FAFSA.
    • The Financial Aid Office will contact you via mail or email IF additional information is required after your FAFSA is received.
    • Note: If additional information is requested, your financial aid cannot be determined until that information is received and processed. Therefore, please submit any required information as soon as possible.
  1. You must be accepted into an eligible certificate or degree program prior to being awarded financial aid. You should receive an award letter which lists your estimated financial aid approximately three to four weeks after you are accepted into an eligible certificate or degree program AND your SAR information is received at WMCC. If you complete your FAFSA before mid-April, you will not receive your award letter until the end of May or three to four weeks after you have submitted all required documentation.
  2. If you elected to accept Stafford loans for the first time then you must  complete Loan Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Note.
